Personalised ‘The Day My Dragons Went Missing’ Book – for ages 6 years and over


Learning to read is tricky. Add in words that sound the same but are spelled differently, and the task becomes a lot harder. That’s why your child needs engaging books that also help them learn the various homophones. After all, kids often learn best when they don’t know they’re being taught something.

Introducing ‘The Day My Dragons Went Missing’ – the sensational book that teaches three of the most frequently confused homophones ‘there’, ‘their’ and ‘they’re’. Children aged 6-8 will delight in the story of four dragons that go on an adventure without their owner. Each book is personalised and printed to order so no matter how unique your child’s name is, he or she will really feel like they’re part of the story.

How many times have you seen someone use the wrong homophone of ‘there’? Perhaps you get them confused yourself. Don’t let your child share the struggle. Order a personalised copy of ‘The Day My Dragons Went Missing’ today and watch as your child learns these tricky homophones with ease.

Guide for parents and carers

Homophones can be very difficult for children to master and ‘there, their and they’re’ are no exception. In fact, many adults get these words confused on a daily basis too, mostly because they didn’t master these words when they were children.

But learning to use homophones doesn’t have to be difficult or boring. All it takes is simple explanations and examples packaged in a fun way so that children have an enjoyable learning experience that they actually want to repeat.

That’s where this book comes in. When four dragons go missing, your child will search high and low for them only to find they have snuck off to learn about the homophones ‘there, their and they’re’. The dragons will then playfully teach your child about the meanings of these tricky words before promising to hunt down the meanings of other homophones in future adventures.

Children who are learning to read and write will enjoy sharing this fun story with their parents and carers. Even better, the book is personalised with their name so they can really feel like they’re part of the action. This book will support your child’s learning so they don’t grow up struggling with these words. It will also prime them for more adventures with the four dragons as they battle witches to discover the difference between ‘witch, which, sandwich and sandwich’ and sail the high seas in an effort to differentiate between ‘whether and weather’. This, and the other stories in this series, will quickly become favourite volumes in your child’s learning library.
