About this deal

Tobago is hot and smells different, his nan and grandad's house is small and they don’t have a television. Gregory isn’t feeling good about his summer. Gregory’s cousin, Lennox lives with his grandparents. Lennox is only a year older than Gregory, Lennox is used to Tobago and enjoys everything it has to offer. Eventually, Gregory sees through his initial perceptions and has a wonderful time. All you need for your class to make individual pop-up Christmas cards. Contains a card pro forma; 11 outline pictures to colour in; 11 coloured illustrations and a set of instructions for pupils to follow. I would use this book with EYFS and KS1 children as the illustrations are so luscious and the story is told so wonderfully. With KS1 children I would look at geography and literacy and find Tobago on maps and in relation to where we live. We could also contrast elements of Gregory’s grandparents and Lennox’s lives with our own and discuss the differences e.g. food, drink, games etc...

A contrast was found in the use of light, fainted watercolours in Burningham’s work, ‘Mr Grumpys Outing’. This reflects Doonan’s (1993) point which suggests the use of saturation and tone are often associated with “emotional connotations” (p.31) as the colour of both picturebooks reflects the different atmospheres in the books. Binch’s use of highly saturated colours represents the weather and culture of a different country. An important aspect that adults could convey and engage in conversation with children about is asking what the colours represent. This applies the idea that children’s interaction with picturebooks is influential on their “construction of knowledge about people and the world” (Medoza and Reese, 2001, p.4). This unit contains 4 printable leaflets that provide a model for persuasive texts plus an example of a persuasive video, which includes texts, images and music.
