1.0 out of 5 stars Terrifying Children at Night Time - is this what the British consider "Literacy"?
Brief book review of Nikki Gamble's "The Story Shop - Stories for Literacy"

We have read a few of Nikki's selected stories and are outright scared to think of what ideas find their way into British children's minds and hearts after reading these nightmare-inducing stories. Is this what British literary agents consider "literacy"?

I have found this book really useful and I will contintue to use the book for some time. I am a teacher and the material, especially Michael Morpurgo has been practical but interesting for the children.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrifying Children at Night Time - is this what the British consider "Literacy"?, 30 Jun 2010
This review is from: Story Shop: Stories For Literacy (Paperback)
Brief book review of Nikki Gamble's "The Story Shop - Stories for Literacy"

We have read a few of Nikki's selected stories and are outright scared to think of what ideas find their way into British children's minds and hearts after reading these nightmare-inducing stories. Is this what British literary agents consider "literacy"?

The underlying themes of fear and uncertainty and lurking dangers call forth negative feelings in an otherwise healthy and well adjusted child. We strongly advise parents and teachers to avoid books like these. Try instead Eileen Browne's books, such as delightful "Tick-Tock", full of strong female lead characters and a clever, joyful storyline showing truthfully how kids not only think but also how they wish to right their wrongs - giving every parent and child a positive view of the ups and downs of child-parent interactions, of rules and loyalty, and of how even the best of intentions end up hilariously funny in the end.

What reasonable and loving parent hasn't ended up laughing in forgiveness over the sweet efforts of a child trying their very best to make up for a mishap?

Sincerely,
