Thank you for sharing your nephew’s delightful book with us. I have ordered two more copies from Amazon. Six adults, three of them teachers, read the book. We thoroughly enjoyed reading it and some read it twice. Four children age’s five to eight also read it. We discussed the type of story, remembered some of the history and learned things for the first time.
The historical postage stamp present on the book is a unique idea. I think this alone would draw both children and adults to the book. I think more would be interested in stamp collecting after reading your book.
“FLAKED OUT” brought back many happy memories for me. I spent some time in St. John’s Newfoundland in 1987. I enjoyed the cod jigging, eating cod tongue and watching “KISSING THE COD”. As the book states, shortly after that time there was the band on fishing for cod.
I don’t know if there is a difference between Canadian students and American students and grade level expectations. I feel that books in classrooms with age and grade ratings put the slow reader and the competent reader at a disadvantage when choosing a book. If the books are put in the library everyone can have the opportunity to read them.
