THE LITTLE FALCON
Inspired by a little boy with cerebral palsy from the UK, and his friend from Illinois. This is a heart-warming story about kindness, friendship, and inclusion.
Each year a group of falcons race and compete for a shiny gold medal and watching on is a little falcon who can't fly, and dreams of winning a gold medal of his own.
Jodi is a super-fast falcon who wins so many medals, she is beginning to feel a little bored of racing! Will the little falcon finally get to join in and win his medal and will Jodi ever learn to love to race again?

"We read The Little Falcon today in class and the children really enjoyed it! They voted to give it 5 out of 5 stars. They enjoyed the theme of friendship, the positive moral of the story, the display of kindness and teamwork, eye catching characters and enjoyment of the rhymes and flow. The Children responded well to discussions around disabilities, there is a good range of KS1 spellings, punctuation and grammar used which would make it a good teaching tool in year 2. A good book to support learning and awareness of Special Educational Needs. Thank you for sharing this book with us"
