Author Tracey Horner came into school this week and delivered an assembly to Reception, Years 1 and 2. She read and discussed her book, The Little Falcon and then went into classes to help with the making of medals. This is her first book, The Little Falcon, and it was inspired by her oldest son Toby and his friend Jodi, who have a very special friendship. It is a short story aimed at children under the age of 7. Perfect as a bed time story.
It is a heart-warming racing adventure about a super-fast falcon called Jodi, and a little falcon called Toby, who is unable to fly. Inspired by my own son, who is diagnosed with cerebral palsy, and his athlete friend Jodi from Illinois US.Tracey Horner
This book is aimed at children aged between 3 to 7 years old in KS1, and introduces early, simple discussions on kindness, friendship, inclusion and disability. It is suitable for both girls and boys. My oldest son Toby is 10 years old and has a complex form of cerebral palsy. My number 1 passion (other than being an author of course), is promoting inclusion, kindness, acceptance, and awareness of disability.
