Format: Paperback
I came across this delightful little story in the course of my work with junior fiction and I really thought it was worthy of praise. The story is very simple. When the teacher invites his father into school to talk about his work as a taxi driver, Tariq is worried. He knows his dad has great stories to tell, but as he also knows that his father's poor English may cause hilarity with certain pupils in the class. He cannot bear the thought that his father might feel humiliated. Mr Chaudury may not speak great English but his other skills save the day.
The reason I was so taken with this little story is that the important message that it is OK to be different comes through loud and clear. We all have talents and skills which may be different to other peoples' but should be celebrated nonetheless. I loved the fact that this caring child wanted to spare adored his father any hurt or embarrassment and the way in which the problem is solved is both imaginative and heart warming. I note from the back of the title page that Imran Khan had some input here, so well done to Stella Gurney, Katherine McEwen AND Mr Khan. A great story.
