It’s a No-Money Day is such an important book, and one that I feel passionately should be in every classroom.

Despite all of the struggles that they face the family remain positive… “Maybe one day.” A book that all children should read and have the opportunity to discuss. In one of the richest societies in human history, such figures should mortify us, yet the Westminster classes take them as unremarkable. They hardly ever trouble TV bulletins or newspaper columns, while Conservative cabinet ministers such as Michael Gove sneer at the impoverished for not being able to “manage their finances”. If they weren’t at the Munch Club, “neither Gary nor me would eat anything till dinner, so as to leave more for the kids”, says Rebecca. How do they cope with the hunger? “You get used to it,” she shrugs. The winners of the Diverse Book Awards 2023 have been announced, with one winner from each of the four categories announced: Picture book, Children... The illustrations sympathetically show how stressful the hard-working mum is sometimes finding life, even as the text fizzes with her little daughter’s enthusiasm. But mum is a quiet, loving presence throughout, and a source of joy and fun for her daughter. It’s a No-Money Day is not a bleak book.Paying for a stranger’s shopping, because you were helped when you were in need (and that stranger will help others when her situation has changed), is just one more way of supporting all our children. This lesson is suitable for use with primary learners with a pre-intermediate level of English and beyond. This moving picture book about a family’s visit to the food bank is a sensitive exploration of how it may feel to live below the poverty line.

A moving insight into the sad rise and necessity of foodbanks from the perspective of society's most vulnerable, and an essential book to help develop empathy in younger readers. About This Edition ISBN: Universal credit!” she shouts, putting the blame squarely on the policy spawned by that MP down the road in Chingford, Iain Duncan Smith. “You have to wait five weeks for any money to turn up; and they mess you about. They [the government] give you a [starting] loan, which they take out of your benefits. It’s just debt upon debt upon debt.” Despite mum’s best efforts, the money has run out and the cupboards are bare. Today is a no-money day. Yet that is no reason to be sad as this family prove. The daughter takes delight in all of her experiences and mum does her best to mask the true pain of the situation.

The picturebooks that have been chosen for this lesson series discuss social issues such as experiencing homelessness, relying on foodbanks and turning to crime and bullying to survive or save face. The lesson sets provide a structured plan and clear guidelines for pupils to engage with an authentic piece of children’s literature, a picturebook, in which both the words and the pictures create meaning. Individual differences in primary and lower secondary pupils are especially marked, but picturebooks can be interpreted on many levels and thus satisfy pupils of different ages and at different points in their English language learning. The lessons provide activities which teachers can select according to the age, language level and interests of the pupils in their classes and provide pupils with stimulating activities to develop their critical thinking as well as their English language skills. Participation Author Anna Kemp introduces The Hollow Hills, the sequel to her dark magical tale, Into Goblyn Wood. A third of UK children live in poverty. This statistic, plus her own experience of not having enough to get by, pushed Kate Milner into writing a book for children about food banks, money worries and everyday joys. It's difficult to tell you how important this gentle, soft book is and so I hope you will forgive me if I jump straight to the punchline: It's A No-Money Day by Kate Milner should be on your shelves. And if you run a library or you are in a school or if you are anywhere that has shelves that are accessed publically, this book should be there twice over. We live in complex times that are often brutal for those living in precarious circumstances, and one of the duties of any librarian or educator is to work to understand and support those in such a situation. To allow their stories to be heard, supported and understood. To allow the children living within such situations to be heard, to be seen. And having books like this on the shelf is important. It just needs to be there. It should be there.
