Gratitude 

1. The gift that Yusuf’s father brings back from the sea can be anything… a piece of glass, a shark’s tooth or a story. Why do you think we could understand each of these things as a ‘gift’? 

Family 

2. Yusuf’s father tells Yusuf that today is a special day, and he will bring a gift back for him. What special days do you share with your family? How do they make you feel? 

Creativity 

3. How many other kinds of gifts can you imagine Yusuf’s father bringing back from the sea?
