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.

Used the book with students with special needs as drama piece.They enjoyed talking about the journey of the boat,looking at the pictures and acting out the journey with props.I am using other books by Neil Griffiths as class books,creating our own tactile versions and our own storysacks for future use.

I bought this book to use as a stimulus for a 'Journeys' topic as I teach Nursery and Reception class. The text is written in a way that reflects the content, it gets wavy when talking about the water etc. Visually it was beautifully illustrated and a good story for sequencing skills. We had great fun making sound effects for various parts of the story and it also led into the children talking about times when they have lost something precious. I like the ending where the boy finds the boat after it had been on its amazing journey, its a story about hope and adventure, one that I would thoroughly recommend.

Format: Paperback
My young son and I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Journey. He was enchanted by the calming story and the wonderful artwork. We have now started to read other books by Neil Griffiths. There is a good variety. Some are extremely entertaining whilst others have a great moral message. Carry on the good work.

This is a delightful children's book. It is the story of a little boy's lost boat, all told in rhyme. It has some fantastic vocabulary and is beautifully illustrated.

The boat goes on a journey past all sorts of locations and across every type of water that you could imagine. I use it with my Year 2 class in Literacy every year. They absolutely love it.

Highly recommended.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Parents in Touch TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 3 Aug. 2011
Format: Paperback
The boy is sad as his boat goes bobbing away down the river - but what marvellous adventures it has! The rhyming text swishes and swirls through the pictures as the boat travels through stream, lake, right down to the sea, having exciting adventures all along the way. Battered and bruised, nonetheless there is a happy surprise at the end. The text is perfectly complemented by the pictures, which reflect the mood of each stage of the journey and the book is a lovely introduction to the world of rivers.
