Birdbrain Amos

This is one of my favourite stories and a great story to read to your class at the beginning of the year when you are discussing values with the students.

Amos is just the most wonderful caring person you will ever meet. He is courteous, thoughful and considerate to everyone he meets, but he does make mistakes.

Amos is a hippopotamus who needs a tic bird to eat the insects off his back.  The trouble is when he advertises for a bird he gets it wrong and interviews a host of unsuitable birds like a pelican and a stalk.

The bird he does select has a hidden agenda and causes Amos embarrassment in the eyes of his fellow hippopotami.  Can he take the steps necessary to right the situation?

Probably suitable at years 3&4 but will be enjoyable for a new class up to year 7/8.

Try it, your students will love you for it.
