really liked it

Mr. Gumpy’s Outing is a light hearted story about Mr.Gumpy going on a boat trip. On the boat he leave a lot of animals get on the board. However, as the boat moves the noise gets louder and louder and the boat eventually breaks. The kind Mr. Gumpy then goes to have tea with all of the animals. Although this story doesn’t have much to it for the adult reader, it can be a useful tool within the classroom in both drama and mathematics. I would use this book in regards to adding animals, “how many animals will be on the boat when the rabbit gets on?”. Children would enjoy doing animal noises for each of the characters. I could see this being used in a fun maths lesson.
The only downside I can see to this book is the fact that the images are drawn in pencil so I do not think that the children would get the full effect of the story because it would be rather hard to show on the screen
