Little Frank is six and it’s his birthday. Dad, Grandpa and Great Grandpa (who are all called Frank) give him a very special present. It’s a model boat, originally made by Great Grandpa Frank over sixty years ago and handed down to Grandpa, Dad and now little Frank. What a fantastic present! Frank can hardly wait to see it sail. But when he loses it in the stream how will he bring himself to tell the others?
A story for Keystage 1 about four generations of a family and their shared memories.. Ideal for reading alongside the history curriculum, the book explores the value of memorabilia and special objects to teach us about the past.
