The Gift and other stories is a collection of short stories with a range of subjects and styles for Years 6 - 8 by some of Australia's best children's writers:

Allan Baillie, Brian Caswell, Jackie French, Jean Chapman, Hazel Edwards,  Nette Hilton, Robin Klein, Margaret Mahy, Geoffrey McSkimming,  Moya Simons and Gillian Rubenstein.

The selection is suitable for all students in Years 6, 7 and 8, but will also appeal to poor or reluctant readers:

  • the stories are well written by recognised authors
  • they use language students can read and learn from
  • they are about high interest level subjects which students will want to read

The Gift and other stories is accompanied by a Teacher Resource Book written by Helen Sykes. This contains background, ideas and activities about the content and language of the stories. Many of the activities are on reproducible worksheets.
