Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Title: Love the Stationery in your Classroom
Author: Rebecca Palliser
Release Date: 14th August 2018
Genre: Picture Book
Publisher: Clink Street Publishing
This is a story, told in rhyme,
Introducing stationery children may use in class time.
Told from the point of view of the kit it shows
How mistreatment hurts and resentment grows.
The stationery decide to rebel, and let children know how
The stationery should be treated in future from now.
It tells children the things
That misuse of kit may bring!
This is a fun, educational story for adults to share with children, rather than for children to read independently as the font and spacing of the text as well as some of the vocabulary would make it too hard for the youngsters to decipher easily. I suspect children will love the idea of the stationery coming to life, though they may need making aware that some of the objects involved in the story (such as tables and chairs) aren’t actually stationery! I suspect some teachers might like to use it at the start of the school year to encourage their pupils to treat the equipment and furniture in their classrooms with greater care and respect.
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book, without any obligation, and this is review is my honest opinion after choosing to read it.
This delightful little book encourages children to learn about – and have fun with – the stationery they encounter in the classroom. Author Rebecca Palliser wants to help all children to find their feet in the primary school classroom.
Rebecca Palliser is a young primary school teacher whose experiences in the classroom inspired her to write to have an influence on her pupils.
She is about to embark on a Masters programme where she hopes to continue to write alongside her studies.
She takes inspiration for her stories from her travels exploring different cultures and cities, spending time with her little dog Darcy and of course her biggest muse, the delightful pupils she is fortunate to teach.
