This is a children's book and is the next book we are reading as a class, basing our work for the next half term on. I wanted to read it in advance so I'd know the story, as I'm not always in the classroom when the text is being read to the children. If you don't know the story, it's hard to support them! Anyway, it's a lovely story, though I think much of it will go over the heads of some of my 7 & 8 year olds, and it's quite sad in places. It will be interesting to see what they get from it!
