Through the eyes of a child
Through the eyes of a child
by Chris Tuck
Edition: Paperback
Price: 11.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Frank and uplifting, 19 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Chris tells it how it is, it ain't pretty, but it's heartwarming how she tells of how she has not just survived, but thrived inspite of such a traumatic childhood. As a school teacher Chris has generously given her time to tell her story in person to hundreds of local teens. She really opened my eyes to both the prevalence and the effects of childhood poverty. Undramatic tone shows Chris's genuine wish to help,

5.0 out of 5 stars couldn't,t believe I hadn,t read it previously, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My life As a youth worker, lecturer and teacher had perhaps been influenced by the film I watched as a child. The book brings to life both the joy of teaching, and the horror of racial discrimination. Inspiring read for teachers, and all who work with teenagers.

4.0 out of 5 stars feminism for today, 4 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wouldn't,t have described myself as a feminist but I fit Sheryl,s definition of seeking equality. Certainly want my daughter, son and husband to read it. Only four stars as repetition was distracting, worried that the tone will stop the principles from being heard.

4.0 out of 5 stars Compulsive, emotive and informative, 22 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hummingbird (Kindle Edition)
Deborah's conversational style immediately drew me in to the depths of emotion she's travelled. The harrowing details of HD left me agog at how a family could have held it together through lows. The Humming Bird tells you what Deborah has learnt about herself through her experience. It is a soulbaring, no it's not written like a novel, no it's not poetic prose but her voice and soul is clear. Well done to her for finding her voice and telling the HD story as well as her own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational, made me wonder why I hadn't become a nurse, 5 July 2013
Although this collection is aimed at nurses I thoroughly enjoyed it as a non nurse. I shall take if to school for my students to read.

Journey Through Europe A travel game of strategy and planning for all the family

4.0 out of 5 stars great travel planning game, 20 Jun 2012
= Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Definitely not a toy. Sharp pointed map pin. Easy to understand, enjoyable game of luck and skill. We came across it in a holiday home in Italy and had many happy evenings with our teenage children arguing over the best routes. The one purchased had hardly been used.

3.0 out of 5 stars Unsettling but unsatifying, 18 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Perfect Love (Paperback)
No I wasn't expecting rampant romance, but perfect love was flawed for me. Couldn't quite see the characters, maybe not her best.
