February new book, not to be missed: heartwarming story reminding us all of the power of nature to help us re-connecting with ourselves and others (p120).

Barrington and Stoke has a reputation of producing excellent short stories. With a dyslexia friendly font and pages, making great stories accessible to all. But, some of their stories are so great they should be read by everyone, this is one of them.

This books is great for all ages from 9+, but is likely to especially appeal to secondary age pupils and their parents. With its important messages about depression, anxiety, acceptance and new beginnings and the power of connecting with nature to help us all through difficult times it could not have been published at a more timely moment in our history.

The story is about a boy called Dylan who is expelled form school, He then leaves the city and goes to live with his grandpa in a small rural town. There he receives acceptance and understanding from his Grandpa and his friends, who don't rush him and just support him to find his own way back into learning. Love how grandads friend Jimmy teachers him maths through looking at shipping maps of the estuary what an excellent example of meaningful home eduction.

When he first arrives Dylan help to save a swan, who then later helps Dylan navigate his boat in stormy waters. The swans migrate to warmer places for the winter. But, when they are gone the marshland that is their home for 3/4 of the year is under threat from development. Can Dylan and his friend Elsie come up with a plan to save the marshes before it is too late?
