Books we recommend
Sometimes when you don’t feel like going somewhere or doing something, you have reasons you don’t want to share. Somewhere Else by Gus Gordon is the tale of George the goose,who always finds a reason to stay home when his friends invite him out. All it takes is someone who understands and helps to find a way through.
Bully on the Bus
I asked my 9yo to read this book, Bully On The Bus by Kathryn Apel. She couldn’t put it down and when she had nearly finished, I asked her what she thought about it she said ‘I felt the feelings Leroy did.’ and THAT is exactly what high quality literature should do. This book is so powerful in its descriptive language, conveying emotions and situational reality. It has a constructive, positive resolution without descending into clichés.
Louis Sachar holes
What an incredible tale of hope and resilience. This young adult novel, Holes by Louis Sachar, is beautifully written and crafted with 2 stories cleverly linked. So many engaging details. Highly recommended!
