5.0 out of 5 stars Great range of poems, 11 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I first read this book after John visited the school I work at to run workshops and readings for the children. I would highly recommend it for children and adults alike. The range of poems is very diverse and they make you laugh, nod in agreement and reflect. For teachers I would recommend the collection as many would make a brilliant stimulus for writing and discussion with children. Now I look forward to reading his books for adults!

5.0 out of 5 stars Imaginative and motivating resource, 5 Oct 2008
This book is an extremely imaginative resource for the teaching of RE, using 'The Simpsons' as a stimulus. Each lesson is clearly explained and well organised - enabling teachers to quickly develop a lesson around the theme. The book is in two sections, a 'lighter touch' set of lessons and a set looking at the issues in more depth.

All extracts in the book are from the same series of the programme, so costs can be kept down as only one DVD is required. Although flagged for use with church youth groups, the lessons work very well with children in Y6 and will add a new dimension to your RE teaching!

Highly recommended.
