Review quote

'Caroline Binch's illustrations of The Gambia are carefully observed and beautifully executed.' 'Caroline Binch' s illustrations of The Gambia are carefully observed and beautifully executed.' ... here is a story that addresses the inner problems of the growing child and does so without heavy didacticism. A great benefit is that it is written at the level of a relatively easy read for the Year 3 or Year 4 child || A great way to link geographical work with PSHE or to extend it through the Literacy Hour.show more
