Bright Sparks: My Dad Came to School by Peter Hayes

Bright Sparks Literacy Project is a set of reading materials that provide staged opportunities for the progressive acquisition of literacy skills in the early years of schooling. Each title draws on a broad base of literacy skills, yet focuses on one or two skills, enabling teachers to appropriately select texts according to student's perceived need. Readers are exposed to a range of appropriate text types and language structures. Texts and activities have been developed around common themes explored in contemporary classrooms, allowing teachers to capitalise on the use of context when reading and writing.
