Development & Learning for Very Young Children by Hilary Fabian

This is an excellent book which I would recommend for parents, carers, early years practitioners and students attending educational studies courses. Easy to understand, no jargon. Just really sound writing.
A Midsummer Night's Dream: Gift Edition (Usborne y&hellip by Lesley Sims

A great way to introduce young readers to one of the Shakespeare classics. It also gave me a better insight into a play that would have previously been viewed as unaccessible by one whose education is less than perfect. Please keep adapting; my daughter loved the colourful, modern illustrations and the story which, whilst retaining its original content has benefitted from the up to date illustrations and language.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spot on, 12 Feb 2007
Whilst this book may not be up to the usual standards, it is however endearing, being empathic with the target age group and full of fun. Both my children (age 6 and 12) found this book enchanting and, being written from a child's perspective of life, the disappointments and high points are faithfully illustrated. The references to the Chimpanzees for example (superimposed in a forest) were relevant to real life. There are many messages within the text (eg, Charie is as patient and helpful as ever to his small sister; people are quiet in the library; much information can be gained from books - all positive messages to pass on to this generation).
