By Penny Vine. This book was inspired by the belief that many children have little direct contact with older people, while older people’s view of children is often shaped by the media, where they are stereotyped as out-of-contol, rude or frightening. A bridge is needed. Older people and younger people need each other. This fantastic little book was created from a series of very simple circle time lesson plans created to help a school who wanted to invite older people into their circle times. Schools who are already encouraging grandparents and older people to come in and support Circle Time will testify to how quickly empathy and kindness can grow. It is very inspiring.
‘We haven’t done enough of this work. But whenever we do invite older people in – or even just the midday supervisors and admin staff – it creates a lovely atmosphere.’
