‘The Red Piano’ wonderful: ReadPlus

The Red Piano


A fine review of The Red Piano by South Australian children’s literature consultant Fran Knight on the kids book website ReadPlus. Here’s an extract:

The stunning front cover draws the reader into the text immediately … For older readers, the story of one girl and the effects of the Cultural Revolution will add to their study of China … For younger readers, the story of bravery and resilience will be a wonderful book to have on hand in the classroom or library when looking at other stories that encourage compassion.

There are lots of book-related resources for teachers, children’s librarians and parents on the ReadPlus website (which is run by Pat Pledger’s Pledger Consulting). It’s well worth a look.
