We know a lot of teachers are using What Happened to You? in schools, so we got an actual teacher – Ale from Read with River – to create a lesson plan with us. Thanks to Faber, the publisher, for commissioning it, you can find it on their website too.
These learning resources were put together with a view to teaching in the UK and internationally. In the UK, Early Years Foundation Stage and Year 1 covers from four to six years old, and Years 2, 3 & 4 covers ages six to ten. You can download the pdfs for free just below.
If you don’t have a copy of the book yet, it’s available in most bookshops, and from our local Blackwell’s, who deliver internationally. It’s illustrated by Karen George, and published by Faber.
You might also be interested in our thoughts for teachers on disability and children’s books more generally. We have a KidLitCripCrit list too, of our favourite picture books featuring disabled characters.
Hope this is helpful!

Edit 23rd August: the reference to “hearing impairment” should read “D/deaf” instead – we’re trying to change this in the pdf.
