The Antons books and methods have gained huge support from parents and teachers alike who have chosen to try out our books with children in their care.
Please see below some brief comments and one outstanding letter of support:
“Just a line to say thank you for your lovely “Antons”.
My son James has a problem in pronouncing his CH TH SH. He does attend speech therapy monthly …the first ANTON he related to was CLIP-CLOP. Also he pronounced it properly instead of saying shlip-shlop or somthing …he enjoys your ANTONS. Thanking you Tony because without them he would probably still not be able to proonounce some words. Keep up the good work.”
Mrs Laver, Halewood
“The Antons books were well received by the children in my class – favourites have already been chosen! Used in conjunction with the cards they are a useful tool in the classroom. Additionally, the introductions at the start of the books have proved to be useful for teachers planning.”
Mr Wong, Teacher, St Vincent de Paul Primary School
“The Antons have been a revelation with my Year 5 Class(9 & 10 year olds). From Art to English they have proven to be ideal for creative, inspirational work and I would recommend them in any classroom”
Julian Downham LLB(Hons), P.G.C.E, Year 5 Teacher, Summerhill C.P. School Maghull
“I am just writing to say how much the Anton books have really helped my Son.
My son Joshua is 7 years old and suffers from Autism and currently attends Alder
Hey special school.
Joshua is interested in Ancient Greece and dud to his lack of reading skills a doctor at
Alder Hey suggested looking for books that would interest him e.g. Ancient Greece and.
foxes as he’ s obsessed with these.
One day I was in town and saw your books and decided to take a look, and to my surprise I
noticed Alfa (Ancient Greece) so of course I’ had to buy it and I also bought the flip cards.
o your books are amazing. My son learned all the Antons names in just one day “yes just
o day” and he recognized their names even without looking at the pictures. What schools
have tried to do in years, your books Tony did in a day. Hard to believe isn’t it?
Tony I feel that ifs due to the fact that your books captured my sons imagination and when
he realised he was actually within the book itself he was ecstatic and couldn’t wait go
back to Ancient Greece. What I really like about your books is that they are all fact-based,
although they take the child into a world of fantasy the child is also learning of history
facts which I believe is a brilliant way of learning. I am also really pleased with the safety
messages to the child. My son is so vulnerable and would go off with anyone due to his condition, to the point doctors have said he must never be alone.
The Antons who have now become my son’s best friends have put across to him the dangers of going with strangers, plus many other things like playing with matches. All messages that I myself could never put across to Josh, but the Antons have.
So Tony I would just like to say a big thank you for creating the Antons and I am sure many
other children would enjoy them as Josh has.
