Anna is Annoyed


Written by Anna Notley, illustrated by Janet Tiitinen

Anna’s little brother, Jonathan, is a constant source of annoyance as he unwittingly hampers her big-girl games. But when Anna includes Jonathan, she learns that playing together can be more fun than playing alone.

Ideal for use with children in Years 1 and 2 (age 5-8). This book has been written to accompany the LanguageLift program, but can also be used independently. The explicit story elements will make it particularly helpful for those struggling with oral language.

Anna is Annoyed provides an excellent introduction to narrative story structure, with all key story elements made explicit. It has a relatable family playground theme. The book features an interesting 'feeling' word ('annoyed'), and simple concepts to allow special focus on story structure. With delightful illustrations of a busy playground, this sweet story is told with humour to which children will relate. Children will love reading about how Anna solved her problem and everyone was happier. You can use this book to discuss:
  • Sibling relations
  • Older children looking after younger children
  • Frustration and how to think about solving a problem
  • Why cooperation can be rewarding
  • What games your child likes to play with others
