Spotlight on Old Tom

One of our favourite Leigh Hobbs books is The Big Book of Old Tom – a collection of five classic Old Tom stories including Old Tom, Old Tom at the Beach, Old Tom Goes to Mars, Old Tom’s Guide to Being Good and A Friend for Old Tom.

Copyright Agency's Reading Australia website has a wealth of teacher resources on The Big Book of Old Tom to help with activities and discussions in the classroom.

It includes discussion questions about setting and identifying characters' feelings, and includes vocabulary-building and creative writing activities. In particular, students learn about the relationship between words and pictures.
