The book chosen by Charlotte 'The Wolves in the Walls', it also has a supporting CD, I can see how this could be really useful to use with children with EAL. The activities chosen are a great way of encouraging children to engage in dialogue. By having the children imagining they are other animals gives all children thew opportunity to express themselves at a similar level, removing some of the barriers language might bring. Incorporating ICT to present their story would be a fun way for children to express themselves and also be kept to assess children's development.
It sounds like a great book and is definitely one I will be looking up in the future.
