At the recent Tech That Teachmeet I heard Nigel Canin of 2Simple talk movingly of his friend, Jonny Zucker, who took his own life last year. As a tribute to Jonny, Nigel republished his book, Striker Boy, in aid of Mind, the mental health charity. My 9 yr old son loves books about football and it’s true to say that he didn’t put this one down and loved it from start to finish. Striker Boy is available from 2Simple Publishing and on the website there is a whole bunch of free downloadable teacher resources. The book costs £6.99 and £1.40 goes to Mind from every purchase. It’s a great class reading resource or a stocking filler for football mad 9 and 10 year olds.
