Grade 1-5 have really enjoyed the story of Hachiko written by Pamela S. Turner and cleverly illustrated by Yan Nascimbene. This true story of a loyal Akito dog, set in Japan in the 1930s, touched our hearts and made us remember how important it is to always remember our friends.

There is a movie version of this story, set in America, and you can watch the trailer here:


One Response to Hachiko

  1. Hello,
    We go to a brand new primary school in New Zealand. We would like to follow your blog. It has great articles about books and marvellous videos to match. We have a library blog that students and the teacher librarian contribute to. Maybe you would like to follow us. We would also like to exchange comments with you and maybe do some activities via the internet with you. Do get in touch with us.
    Carolyn (teacher) and students of Amesbury School
