One of our favourite Leigh Hobbs books isÂ The Big Book of Old Tom â€“ a collectionÂ of five classic Old Tom stories includingÂ Old Tom, Old Tom at the Beach, Old Tom Goes to Mars, Old Tomâ€™s Guide to Being Good andÂ AÂ Friend for Old Tom.
Copyright Agency's Reading Australia website has a wealth of teacher resources on The Big Book of Old TomÂ to help with activities and discussions in the classroom.
It includesÂ discussion questions about setting and identifying characters' feelings, andÂ includes vocabulary-building and creative writing activities. In particular, students learn about the relationship between words and pictures.
