5.0 out of 5 stars Fun!, 14 Jun 2014
This book is full of fun ideas, simple ideas and useful ideas. It will show you how to engage your kids when you have jobs to do, how to create invitations to play and to set up play very quickly. It encourages you to get involved and to make it easy for your child to access play independently too. It is a wise,fun and inspiring book and an easy, pleasant read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful, 13 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really liked this book. It was very clear and gave lots of examples of how you could negotiate prices on practically everything. It left me feeling confident and prepared to get the best deal I could.
Fantastic, exactly what I wanted to learn from it. Marc writes in an engaging, entertaining way and this is a pleasure to read, not dry like many finance books.

A very sweet and helpful book to explain to children why parents separate. Ultimately positive whilst still acknowledging the hurt feelings involved.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Craft Book, 26 Mar 2013
My family adore this craft book.
It has the most lovely projects in. The best thing for us was that the crafts could almost all be made from nature or everyday products so they were inexpensive to make.
The colour photos and step by step instructions made the crafts easy to follow and they turned out really well.
We have long been big fans of the Red Ted Art blog and we think the book is just amazing! A great investment in a family's creativity

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet story with great values, 8 Nov 2012
This review is from: The Best Present Ever! (Paperback)
The Best Present Ever is a sweet story about a king who is delighted to hear he is to have a baby and wants to get his queen the best gift ever. It's a very sweet tale all about loving and givijng and about ohoe uhumble gifts can be syurprisingly becautiful, It is lovely that it is the poor fisherman they all look down on that brings the most amazing of gifts in the most unexpected of ways.

This is a book fill of good feeling, the king even feels empathy for the rich merchants whose gifts arent chosen and he finds away that they can give to the queen after all. These are exactly the kind of loving messages kids should be hearing. What a happy book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fanatsic at enagaing a child's creativity and imagination, 5 Sep 2012
This review is from: Just Imagine (Hardcover)
I urge you to buy this brilliant book. It encourages children to think and feel and imagine and it really engages them, An example from this book would be 'Imagine being made differently...not really human at all" this suggestion is then followed by pictures of centaurs, lego men ghosts, drawings and jelly people. Lots to stir a child's imagination and help them think outside the box. I wondered what it would be like to be made of jelly too? Wibbly, cold and giggly I think.

I cannot tell you how much I ADORE this boook. I think both this and the first book YOU CHOOSE are brilliant they encourage children to interact with both the visual and the written word, they encourage them to be creative and use their natural resources and they enable stories to be created and worlds to be made.

Over a million copies of You Choose were sold and rightly so.I think these books should be in all KS1 classrooms and a mandatory read! Such fun. My five year old daughter sat for an hour with Just Imagine last night chatting to herself and imagining. How wonderful. If I knew their number I would call up the authors may self and say a great bIg WELL DONE. In a world of spoonfed entertainment you have encouraged a child to be creative and be entertained by their own minds. A great thing.
