Book 5 – Caring and Sharing

book5CaringandSharingcoverCaring and Sharing addresses the concerns of 9-10 year olds (Year 5). Charlie and Alice are uprooted when their fathers find new work in another town. Parted from their old school-friends and with both their families cramped into one rented house, the cousins discover what it means to belong, to own and to share. They discover the importance of families helping each other, and that sharing extends to time, space, talents and even life itself. Living in any community, at home, at school, or in the neighbourhood at large, demands generosity, respect for others and for their property, and also the give and take of saying sorry and thank you.
