Junior literacy anthology with curriculum - linked, fun activities.

All stories link to the curriculum theme of 'Like Me'.

School, home, family and where you fit concerns eight to ten year olds. Wanting to be like everybody else is common, but we are all different. So a sense of humour helps.

And diverse viewpoints, even a cat, insect or a Reading Dog. These stories provide this experience.

Issues of handling differences, bravery, names and imaginative problem solving, using fun.  Family issues such as fostering and visit day ( Volume two) and where you fit in a changing family or school. All stories have been widely used.

..............................................................................................................................................

'Betwixt' from Like Me: Volume Two has been performed for young audiences by Story Surprise on their

Spotify podcast with non-binary narrator Katie Long.

For educators,  there's also a useful 'behind the scenes' fun and informative discussion about identity and

pronouns on Youtube.
