Only One You

Key Primary Linking Book

By Linda Kranz  Taylor Trade Books ISBN: 10: 1589797485

“There’s only one you in this great big world. Make it a better place…” This beautiful little book is full of simple yet powerful wisdom relevant for us all. Our favourite lines include ‘know when to speak and when to listen.’ ‘If you take a wrong turn circle back’ and as well as the core line ‘There’s only one you.’ Many primary linking teachers read this book in their own classrooms then when their classes meet they create unique Only One You fish to give to their partner classes to take back to school. Only One You is a book with a strong message about individual liberty and equality we want all our children to make their own.
