In Our Hands

Author: Lucy Farfort
Illustrator: Lucy Farfort
Publisher: Tate Publishing

A timeless fable‚ this debut children’s picture book from author Lucy Farfort is sure to entrance and empower in equal measure.

"We called it 'The Dulling'. It had been creeping in for such a long time, and had started so gradually, that most people barely even noticed. As the Dulling spread, people began to fight and isolate themselves from each other. Neighbours became enemies, friends became strangers, and soon all colour was drained from the world."

When the world is plagued by isolation and cursed to live without colour‚ it is up to a group of determined children to grow a seed of hope that will inspire everyone to come together and build a better future.

The CLPE Teaching Team created a FREE, 2 week long, whole school unit of work for Early Years through to Year 6 around In Our Hands.  See below.
