A Tale of Unexpected Kindness
on November 11, 2012
They say when you're down that's when you learn who your true friends really are and the value you place in each other. In this heartfelt story, Amos McGee repeats the same daily routines every day. He makes tea, catches a bus, goes to the zoo, and engages with each animal in a special way. When Amos doesn't show up for work one day the animals pay a visit to their friend. The take a bus to Amos and each cheer him up in their own special way after having tea. This story is a wonderful book that teaches about the importance of good friends and focuses on memory, attention, retrieval, repetition and rehearsal. Children learn, gain and remember information through repetition and learn to process events in sequence so that they can predict what happens next.
