Read full description of the books:
Grace and Family is a book about a girl called Grace whose parents have separated. Grace often reads stories that talk about a family as being inclusive of a mother, father, child and pet. Grace expresses to her mother that she feels as though she does not have a proper family. Grace's mother deals with this by telling Grace about how Grace's parents came to separate. One day, Grace's father writes to Grace with tickets for Grace to visit him and his new family. At first Grace is apprehensive having not seen her father in such a long time and also from what she has read in stories about step-mothers. By the end of the story Grace understands that family is what you make it to be and not all families are the same.
A wonderful book that has some cross-curricular links. This book has been using to introduce the concept of settings in literacy. It is an easy starting point for children to recognise cues in the text that suggest the setting is going to change. The theme of the book is about families and can be used as a topic of discussion in PSHE from Grace's perspective. I found that after reading this book some of the children in my class discussed their families amongst themselves - particularly those who only live with one parent. It could also be used as a topic for circle time in terms of differences between how we live in England and how people may live in other countries.
This book has been used mainly for years 3 and 4 for literacy, but could also be used in year 2.
