Book recommendation. If you have not read this book, you really need to. This is the first bigger book I learnt to read when I was around 7 years old and it has stayed with me ever since. It is a brilliant book and I will always cherish it.

Stig of the Dump

shelfinwonderland:

Stig of the Dump is an exciting classic written by Clive King.

It’s about a boy called Barney, who finds a caveman called Stig, living in the bottom of a dump in Devon. They go on amazing adventures together and even travel back in time to the stone-age.

I enjoyed this book and would recomend it to anyone who likes exciting stories or someone who is looking for a good modern classic to read.

One of my absolute favourite books when I was a kid:
"The story concerns a young boy, Bill Simpson, who wakes up one morning to find he is a girl… Forced off to school in a frilly pink dress, Bill discovers one of the worst days in his life is about to begin. Baffled by the way things are just different for girls, Bill falls headlong into trouble. The book has been used successfully to challenge gender stereotyping. In a study by A. Wing, in 2002 by the Social Science Research Unit, University of London children were read Bill’s New Frock. The content of the book was discussed with them. Children were able to articulate, and reflect on, their stereotypical constructions of gender and those in the world at large. There was evidence of children considering ‘the different treatment that boys and girls receive’, and of classroom discussion enabling stereotypes to be challenged”. From wikipedia.
