Levels 1 and 2 take students on a magical journey meeting well-known fairy tale characters to find the treasure at the end of the rainbow.
The idea of a quest is continued in levels 3 and 4 but the context moves away from the world of fairy tales to one of mystery and adventure, working with the children's growing maturity and awareness of the world around them.
