I inherited a bag of books from a British parent moving back to England.
A couple of the books are fun animal books (very DKish) that I know the
children in my school (a K-1 building) would enjoy.  They're British
books and full of British versions of words...realise, favourite,
fossilise, etc.  Obviously, I want the children to realize that there
are differences in the languages.  Is it confusing to children that are
just learning how to spell?  My gut feeling is that the children who
pick up the differences will find it interesting, but I'm wondering if
I'll have difficulty with parents.  What are your thoughts?  Has anyone
had any experience in this area?
