This book would be good for primary students. This book is "The Rough Patch" written and illustrated by Brian Lies, and published in 2018. This book is about a Fox who is a grander and his dog. They are best friends and do everything together until the dog dies and his garden because desolate and full of weeds until a pumpkin vine begins to grow. The vine produces a huge pumpkin thatt wins a contest and he wins a new puppy. I would for sure use this book in my classroom as it has a great message of that even though despair happens, good things always grow out of hard times.… (lisätietoja)
