Download From Betty's Books
Betty's Books is a collection of free, downloadable books appropriate for English as a Second Language beginning readers. Some are original A.H.A.V.A. content and some are from other internet sources (with permission of course). All you have to do is download the file, print it out and fold the pages over (see video below) and give it to your ESL reader to read!
Choose a book from Betty's Booklist & download it.
Print out the pages (one sided).
Separate the title page from the stack and fold it in half.
Fold all the other pages in half together in the other direction (see video). Take them out and stack them up in order.
Insert the middle pages into the title page (the fold will now stick out towards you).
Staple the spine 3 times. Cover with scotch tape if you wish. Presto! You have a book!

Early Level One:
Betty Bloomber z"l was Gaila's aunt. A staunch Zionist and supporter of A.H.A.V.A., she loved reading and the children of Israel.
To learn a language children need to read. However, Israeli children have little access to emergent readers appropriate for a second language learner. This is why we have created "Betty's Books"!
