This is a stimulating, thought-provoking and engaging story which will stimulate -˜possibility thinking' and motivate learners of all ages to raise their aspirations. The verbal interactions between Gilbert and Grandma encourage self-reflection by the reader in terms of motivational strategies on the theme, “If you have a big what you're going to need a pretty big why to go with it”.
The structure of the book with short, sharply focused chapters with the additional box templates and finger questions sheets all add to the value of the text in promoting effective thinking strategies.
It was pleasing to note that Grandma had the final word, “No matter what you achieve in life, it's what's inside that counts, remember that my boy.”
Altogether, another enthralling text from the Gilbert stable, which should be an asset in every learning mentor and tutor's portfolio of ideas to be more effective.
