The School that Sank
By Sherry North / Illustrated By Diane Bowles
Macmillan Caribbean, 2003
When a seaside school starts sinking into the sand, the students’ imaginations run wild. Their outlandish ideas for saving the school will delight young readers.
Part of Macmillan Caribbean’s Hop Step Jump series, this book is a good choice for beginning readers, as well as an engaging read-aloud for toddlers.
I use this book as a springboard for discussing fact versus fiction during school visits.
