About the Author

I am an accidental author. I found it difficult to engage with my daughter Nicole s homework. Conventional resources were boring and dry, offering no real parent-child engagement. Personal frustration and the application of parental pressure were having a negative effect at homework time. To try to make a difference, I converted some homework into crosswords to make it fun. When she came to do her SATs at end of primary school, I realised that I had converted much of the National Curriculum into crosswords. I produced a few books as mementos of the fun we had shared and the things we had both learned. Waterstones saw the book from a teacher at her school. They suggested that they waned to stock it, so I printed more. After a short local trial, the books were distributed nationally very quickly. It became clear that the homework headache existed in every house, not just mine and I was inspired to publish a complete set of KS1 and KS2 titles, all of which continue the fun approach enabling children (and their parents) to enjoy learning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Learning made fun 14 Oct 2012
The SKIPS CrossWord Puzzles book is incredibly helpful for my daughter. She enjoys doing the puzzles, so learning isn't a chore -it's actually fun. I'm impressed by the way they look and how they teach concepts of English. And it makes it easier for me to get her to do work. I enjoy sitting down with her and seeing how she gets involved in figuring out the puzzles. A great learning tool!!! The fact that a parent thought up these books makes sense to me - wish I'd thought of it first!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great learning tool! 1 Oct 2012
By B Uppon
This book really helped. It is clear and easy to follow. The crossword idea is great and a lot more fun - making it really different from the other study guides I've looked at. It is colourful and easy for kids to engage with. I'd definitely recommend it to parents.
