Writer Linda Sacco collaborates with Spotwood Primary's 4/5H class to chronicle the arrival of the class mascot. Enter Bugsy, a dwarf lop, who prompts the class to investigate rabbits and petcare. The ebook is a charming collection of student work. Informative and brimming with enthusiasm for the topic.
Linda Sacco mentors the students well. The writing is well-researched and polished. Clearly the students have put a lot of effort into their work. An important lesson learnt is the reality of pet ownership. The students' writing reflect considerations about taking care of Bugsy as well as how he fits into their classroom.
A nice resource for teachers. A good read for rabbit lovers who will be charmed by the students' enthusiastic writing.
