Take A Look Inside

Georgie writes with intelligence, humour, from the heart and with a point of view. We should have called this book agree or disagree. Your students are bound to have their own point of view and we encourage them to express it. The topics are thought provoking but not controversial - we want the students to express a point of view, not get into a fight. In the introduction we provide sentence starters that teach students how to politely, and in a civil manner, express a point of view.

The Essays:
An Ode to Dear Old - and New - Dads
     (The role of fathers.)           
A Mother's Work Is Always Done          
     (The role of mothers.)

     (Family issues - At what age should children leave home?)
