The Chatterpack includes: • An introduction sheet to warm up the group and encourage them to share details about themselves and their lives • A ‘You are the Hero Activity’ to test the children’s understanding of the book • Various activities to explore the group’s creative side and encourage imagination The I HERO series is written by Steve Barlow and Steve Skidmore. Each book is an exciting interactive adventure where readers are the hero and can decide their own destiny as the story progresses. Readers bring these enjoyable stories to life as they make choices, which pull them further and further into the action. Introduce the book to your group and give them time to read it – then you can follow up with a session using activities from this pack.
