H.P. Gentileschi is a former English Language school director in Rome, Italy. She is currently an elementary school teacher at an international school and a highly experienced English as an Additional Language (EAL) consultant.
As if that weren’t enough to keep her busy, she’s also a mum of two, artist and total bake-off queen. A native of Texas, she now lives and works in Rome, having worked with young learners in Switzerland, Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and the USA for two decades.
After many years of not being able to find quality resources for her young EAL students – and tired of the same old boring pre-readers for English-speaking children – Gentileschi decided to take matters in to her own hands. The AlphaBOX Alphabet Readers collection was born!
With her unique brand of gorgeous design, friendly characters and clear text, the author is now bringing English fluency and literacy to children one letter at a time.
Ride around Rome with rabbit and his rainbow, discover the delightful days of duck, peek at penguin’s paper plane and so much more in this enchanting series. And please don’t forget to let us know what you (and your little ones) think!
