Being Friends With Bodie Finch by Candy Lawrence
Snatching toys, spoiling games, throwing chairs – Zara just can’t take the new boy’s behaviour any more! But then Miss Tinker comes into Zara’s class, and shows Zara what life is really like for Bodie Finch. Armed with this understanding, little Zara reaches out the hand of friendship – and the result surprises everyone. This picture book unlocks the mysteries of autism in child-friendly language and comes with a digital handbook (access details are in the book!) to help teachers and parents work Miss Tinker’s magic in their own classrooms and homes.
Such a beautifully written story. I’m glad I read it at home first before I read it to my preschool class, because I actually got a little teary. Everybody needs to read this story to learn from ‘Miss Tinker’.
Oh that's lovely! I definitely like to read stories before reading them to children - I am prone to getting teary with books. Thanks for taking the time to review. Nic :)
