What to Read After... Mr Gum 19/08/19
Publisher: Brubaker, Ford & Friends
In this charming picture book for younger children, a little boy discovers and explores his own shadow. Not knowing what it is, he excitedly plays with his shadow, as it follows him, plays hide and seek and even waves at him. Only when the clouds turn grey does his shadow disappear. Full of sadness, he patiently awaits the return of his shadow.
This is a warm-hearted story that is ideal for children learning to read, whether in or out of a school setting. It will actively engage young readers, who will be able to relate to the story and perhaps explore their own shadows too.
