There is a great story behind A Visit to City Farm, published by Firetree Books.
Chalkhill Primary School are the proud co-publishers and the children's names are included in the book.
Firetree Publishers have received Arts Council funding for the project, a real achievement in the production of such a wonderful book, and a splendid idea.
The story is set in London and we follow the children on their journey from school, 'Coats zipped, rucksacks light, hands free for holding tight'. The class sets off through the noisy traffic and reaches the underground, where the train comes roaring through a deep dark, tunnel.
At the farm they meet the animals, help to feed some and then enjoy their packed lunches.
'That was the best day ever, said Rainbow class.'
Written by Verna Wilkins, who is a great supporter of diversity in books, which is clearly shown through the children and teachers at Chalkhill Primary, Wembley.
We recommend A Visit to City Farm for ages 5-7 years, an excellent book and a very interesting dimension on how to work with children in writing and creative projects.
