This book is an indispensable resource for use in both the classroom and assembly, providing a delightful collection of fifteen original themed stories and activities, designed to develop key values and skills. Using the power of story, it stimulates reflection and discussion on a range of topics. The material is presented to maximise fun in learning, flexibility and coverage of National Curriculum guidelines for values education teaching. Amongst the key values discussed are: * personal responsibility and independence * co-operation and sharing * honesty and justice * respect for world religions. Each session contributes to key skills in English, whilst many of the activities involve use of co-ordination, numeracy and science skills. In addition, the stories are implicitly multicultural in flavour, giving a diverse and innovative feel to the book as a whole. An irresistibly charming, and yet practical tool, its topical tales and photocopiable resources make it an essential classroom companion.
