The Naming of Tishkin Silk

The Naming of Tishkin SilkThe Naming of Tishkin Silk by Glenda Millard
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve read this book so many times – sometimes to myself and often to Year 5s. Every. single. time I get to the bit where Tishkin discovers what has really happened, and I just cry and cry and cry – even when I’m reading it to kids. We used to have a code phrase for when I started to get upset. The kids would say to me, “Suck it up, Mrs F,” and I would, and we would go on.
This is really one of the most moving, heartfelt, beautifully written, divine books you will ever read.
I recommend it to anyone who is an independent reader – from primary school age to adult.
