Good book, you should read it. As the story is read to the class, I have used the technique Cleversticks putting the book down and asking them a question about each page — usually an observational question and the pictures etc. Soon Ling Sung is teaching everyone how to use chopsticks, and in turn, he is willing to let others teach him things too.
For example, Ling Sung is unable to tie his shoe laces like Terry can, nor write his name Cleversticks Manjit can. A history of the origins of dim sum and its popularity today is described in an epilogue. Here, a little girl narrates a simple story of the delicious meal she shares with her family.
What other students are good at, you will not always be good at it at the same time. Easy reader in picture book format. As each child selects from a Cleversticks, the perspective changes to focus on the chooser. His first novel, The Trouble with Donovan Croft recently re-issued by OUPwas published in 1974 and won the 'Other' Award, an alternative to the Carnegie Medal for which he has been shortlisted three times.
If Cleversticks there had been a picture of someone washing them first! Ling Sung has decided he doesn't like school. Ling Sung is the main character in this book by Bernard Ashley. This is a structured performance that still allows each child to contribute in a meaningful way. Everybody had already shown their abilities to do something by themselves tie their laces, do up the coat, do up the apron, etc. The book captures accurately the story of frustration and then identity assertion of Cleversticks little boy who is exposed to the school environment and the ways children seek to stand out and demonstrate the abilities they have learned.
Cleversticks by Bernard Ashley, illustrated by Derek Brazell — publ. Charming and realistic pencil illustrations. After reading the book, the teacher requested a copy to read to her kids at the beginning of school each year.
Easy reader in picture book format. Using his "Cleversticks" was his special talent and was something the other students could not do. I really enjoyed reading this book.
She felt it was a perfect way to demonstrate the need for sharing and the value of differences.
