Friendship

OCTOBER 2018: BOOK OF THE MONTH

We chose friendship as our first theme as this project was founded by four friends (Sandie, Tatia, Gail & Anneta). Friendship was also the theme of the 2018 National Children’s Book Week which takes place every October in the Netherlands.

“Did you know that sometimes, with a little electricity, or luck, or even magic, an imaginary friend might appear when you need one? An imaginary friend like Fred. Fred floated like a feather in the wind until Sam, a lonely little boy, wished for him and, together, they found a friendship like no other.” (Harper Publishing) Oliver’s Website. Imaginary Fred has his own website so have a browse, some nice downloadable teaching activities available. Imaginary Fred works especially well with the older primary learner. Watch our videos for all our teaching ideas.


Below you will find some more recommendations linked to the theme of friendship. We have indicated if we think the picturebook is suitable for Younger Primary Learners [YPL], Older Primary Learners [OPL] or All Primary Learners [APL]. We have also linked suitable teaching resources.
