Read full description of the books:
Franklin the tortoise has always lived in the same place and has had lots and lots of friends. One day a moving van comes to town bringing Moose and his family who Franklin is very scared of and doesn’t want to make friends with. Moose is however Franklin’s new classmate and all of the children seem to be scared of him because he is so big! After break Mr Owl has a word with Franklin and asks him to work with Moose, when he refuses Mr Owl asks him to think about what it would be like to be the new person with no friends when he has so many and how scared Moose must be. After this Franklin taught Moose to get books from the library, how to cut a circle and even introduced him to his friends at lunch. Franklin realises Moose isn’t half as scary as he thought and they become special friends.
The message that came from Mr Owl about how to treat new children in the class and getting the children to put themselves in the position of being the new child and how they might feel, could easily be used within an actual classroom setting in preparation for a new child in the class. The lovely illustrations in this book clearly help to show the emotions of the animals such as the sad and nervous expressions of Moose which could make it easier for children to understand the characters feelings. This wasn’t the most interesting or exciting of reads however I do think the message coming from the story would serve a good purpose in a classroom
