I thought I’d share some children’s books that I’ve recently purchased. I’ve been working on my first Master’s assignment this half term holiday so I’ve needed to balance my school work with my Master’s work. It’s a struggle, let me tell you. It might be clear now why I’m quite absent on this blog, but I’m trying to be here when I can.
I’m currently planning a PSHE (personal, social, health education) unit around sustainability. Me being me, I’ve decided to use some books as hooks for the start of the lesson. I’m excited about them, so wanted to share them!
Book images go to Goodreads!
The Last Wolf- Mini Grey
This is an adorable story of Little Red Riding Hood gone green. As in environmental friendly and aware. She goes off to hunt a wolf and realises there’s only one left. She finds out more about the animals situation and does what she can to save them. I’m going to use this book in one of our first lessons.
The Last Tree- Ingrid Chabbert & Guridi
Another beautiful picture book. This one revolves around a boy who has a discussion with his dad about what his dad’s childhood was like. The boy realises that the environment has changed significantly. When there’s a plan to build a new set of houses, the boy digs up and replants the tree.
The next two books are about plastic pollution and I’ll use them in lessons where we come up with alternatives for plastic.
Plastic Sucks- Dougie Poynter
I’m planning to use sections of this book to help them with ideas of how they can make a difference.
Kids Fight Plastic- Martin Dorey
Again, I aim to use parts of this book, even though I’m sure they’re going to want me to read it all at some point!
