What is it like when an Aboriginal child moves from a remote community into a mainstream school?

Written from the child's perspective, these true stories raise awareness about learning English as a second language.


These stories are based on the memories of the author May O’Brien from when she was a child.

It is a collection of four short stories designed to help children to understand some of the difficulties that people have learning English.

It is a perfect book to help any EAL learners to realise that everyone makes mistakes, but that someone will always help you.

Great for both girls and boys, Year 3 & 4 up.

This book was included in our April 2014 Primary Fiction Standing Order selection.
