My Short Read of the Week: Storm, by Sam Usher

This week’s Short Read of the Week is Sam Usher’s Storm, published by Templar Books.

With the obvious arrival of Autumn last week, heralded by Storm Callum, I couldn’t think of a more appropriate time to introduce the children to Sam Usher’s new story – the latest in a series of picture books linking the weather to the adventures of a young boy and his grandfather. 326 more words

Read the Book, Lemmings! My short read of the week

It’s World Mental Health Day, so it’s very appropriate that my Short Read of the Week is Read the Book, Lemmings!, by Ame Dyckman and Zachariah OHora because it has made me and the children laugh so much that I think we have discovered a new favourite in the school library. 515 more words
