We All Need A Home. Talk about homes around the world.

This beautifully illustrated story and the song which accompanies it were originally created for one of my ESL programmes but you will find them just as useful for younger English-speaking primary students. Learn about the different homes that children live in around the world, encourage empathy and kick-start a class project about how other people live. Illustrations by Maria Tarrago and design by Eva Morell.
