Geraldo (along with the teachers manual Discovering Our Voice, sold separately) provides teachers with an accessible way of exploring philosophical concepts with their students. The story is about what a child faces when he leaves one culture and tries to join another. In addition to his feelings of dislocation, he finds that he must learn a new language as well as social and ethical norms. In order to cope with this, he finds a new way of looking at things. Teachers who are searching for ways to extend students language skills will find this material valuable. It will also fit into other areas of the curriculum such as society and the environment.
