Street Child by Berlie Doherty is one of the texts suggested by the DCSF for use in schools, namely in upper junior school age range. The story tells the tale of the beginning of the Barnardo's children's homes. It is well written and the read and respond pack offers additional ideas for work on the text and extension activities. More resouces are available to support the text online due to the popularity of the text in classrooms. This is a good place to start for teachers putting together work for use in school, or for parents wanting to support their children's work in school.

Only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is the skinniness of the book. More content should be in this book for the money.

Bought this to go with story as I was teaching Victorians and wanted a text and activities children could access and enjoy. The children loved the story and the teaching ideas in this book really helped.

A great accompaniment to the book 'Street Child' by Bernie Doherty, with very useful photocopiable reosurces and great ideas for extending use of the text into Guided Reading sessions.

Excellent resource, links well with the actual book. Comprehension questions are on point. May need to be adapted depending on year group. Overall, a great buy.

Some good ideas for lessons in this book. I do wish it was a little thicker for the money though.
