5 EASY STEPS FOR USING THIS RESOURCE:

Step 1

Read the stories to familiarise yourself with the major emotional themes and further concepts of each book.

Step 2

Familiarise yourself with the questions found in the ‘Books & Questions’ section of this website and also, if you have the Teacher Resource, in the Questions under each book category.

Step 3

Before reading the books to the class, outline the major learning outcome/theme found on the front cover of each book. Ask the children if they understand what the theme means and discuss.

Step 4

Read the books and/or watch and listen to the animated video.

Step 5

On almost each page of each book, there are various issues that can be discussed with the children. For example, in Flight of the Kite, Ginnie is displaying signs of anxiety, on the following page Pinney ignores how Ginnie feels and encouraging his friends Ginnie is subjected to peer pressure. Each one of these issues can be unpacked to get the most out of the stories. 

 "These stories are something we have been wanting and needing for a long time...and are the kind of concepts that much of our Early Years Learning Framework talks to. The children have loved these books."
