Can a Giant from Nowhere learn how to belong in the village of Somewhere, even though he's so much bigger than everyone else? This fun and uplifting tale helps children aged 5-8 to think about inclusivity and difference. With flexible lesson plans and creative activities, it is ideal for both children and those who teach or care for them.


 


This story is about a Giant who lives in Nowhere, with no one around to make friends with. He's so lonely that he goes searching for the village of Somewhere - only to find that he's still too big to fit in! The Giant seems huge and scary to the villagers, but can they learn to understand him and make him feel at home?


 


Beautifully illustrated, this heart-warming tale encourages children to think about inclusivity and tolerance and to develop language skills, while allowing them to take part in the story themselves. Its exploration of differences and belonging make it especially suitable for children with special needs or for whom English is a second language, and the activities will help these children build communication skills. Featuring fun and adaptable lesson plans (also available online) including activities for discussion, creative writing and arts and crafts, it is the perfect resource for children aged 5-8 and those who work with or care for them.


 


Market -  Teachers of primary school children, especially learning support teachers, and those supporting students with English as a second language. Also suitable for parents and carers.
