News  ·  “The Story Oozes Empathy”

Just Jack

Literacy company Just Imagine has reviewed Kate Scott‘s Just Jack for their blog.

Just Jack will be my next read-aloud text in Key Stage Two, but it would also work well as a Guided Reading text, or as a personal recommendation to a child who has moved house a lot. The story oozes empathy; the ending and the final illustration made me cry.”

Read the full review here.

Children’s Books Ireland also featured Just Jack in their latest INIS Reading Guide, writing “humour, warmth, and an ear for authentic kids’ dialogue make this an absolute joy to read.”

Congratulations to Kate. Find her on Twitter @KateScottWriter.

Kate recently launched the BookPenPals scheme.
