Flour Babies

(9 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Penguin

As part of a Child Development project, each boy in Class 4C is given a 'flour baby', a sack of flour which must be looked after for three weeks, ensuring it does not get lost or dirty. Simon becomes unusually attached to his flour baby - and soon begins to appreciate some of the sacrifices his mother has made for him as a single parent.

This funny story from former Children's Laureate Anne Fine is an established favourite of classrooms and homes everywhere. Thought-provoking and unusual, it cleverly balances episodes of laugh-out-loud humour with some very touching moments.
