5.0 out of 5 stars Heart warming story and great for teaching story structure, 31 Jan 2010
By 
This review is from: Read Write Inc. Comprehension: Gregory Cool (Paperback)
I am a Year 4 teacher and I have used this book with my 8 and 9 year olds and they thoroughly enjoy it. It is a straightforward story of a young boy going (on his own) to visit his grandparents and cousin on Tobago. At first he suffers from culture shock> The story tracks his changing attitude to his family and the island.

From a teaching perspective it is excellent resource to help the children understand a simple plot and then be confident to write their own versions of the story. It is beautifully illustrated and it can also be used as a great introduction to topics involving changes in children's lives and their attitudes to these changes.

And if you just want to read it and enjoy it, that's great too. The illustrations and the gentle way in which the characters are developed makes it a lovely book for a parent to read with a child or for the child to read for themselves.

Thoroughly recommend it.
