More About the Author

NEIL GRIFFITHS - Author and storyteller
Neil Griffiths, was a Primary School headteacher for 13 years before taking on the role of director of a National Literacy Project for the Basic Skills Agency. This agency believed in Neil's highly original Storysack idea and allowed him to promote it to schools and communities throughout the U.K. After six years, Neil began to devote all of his energies to the project and set up what is now the worldwide, highly acclaimed, and award-winning Storysack® phenomenon.
Many publishers and institutions have asked Neil to contribute his wealth of experience to their projects over the years - his knowledge of learning, his gift of story, his passion for teaching, and his love of children - helping them to produce prized resources and to achieve success in the highly competitive educational market. He has created award-winning play resources, written a nursery curriculum, a best-selling resource book on creative play for Nelson Thornes Publishers, and imaginative material for the Early Learning Centre. He has developed a scheme for supporting English as an additional language for Harcourt Publishing and has consulted for a highly successful toy manufacturer.
Neil also finds time to write his own children's picture books, published exclusively by Red Robin Books. They feature strong storylines, memorable characters, enchanting language, and arresting illustrations. They charm children and have sold in the thousands. Neil loves to tell a story and a story time with him is a rare and highly entertaining event as he magically draws his audience into his storyworlds.
Neil is also available for inspirational training worldwide.
He is known internationally for his unique delivery, exceptional energy, and his rare storytelling gift.
A time with Neil is an experience you will never forget!

5.0 out of 5 stars Learn maths through stories 14 May 2011
By Parents in Touch TOP 500 REVIEWER
This book is subtitled 'Ideas for developing mathematics through story' and it is full of inspirational ideas to help parents and teachers use stories to help develop an understanding of number. The book explores ways to use stories to support the maths Early Learning Goals and early stages of the National Curriculum. It also supports all other areas of the Early Years curriculum. Topics are supported by learning activities, role play ideas, preparation, extension activities covered, goals and, of course, extensive lists of suitable books to address each topic. To take one example - 'Count on Stories' includes role play and mime, cards to enhance learning, mathematical vocabulary and book lists. The back of the book contains a wonderful collection of finger puppet templates to copy, which really help to bring teaching to life - these are a great resource. There is so much in this book, it is hard to do it justice in a short review - I strongly recommend you get hold of a copy and help the children in your care really enjoy their mathematical learning and establish a strong base for the future, as well as seeing maths as fun.
