A compact yet thorough and fun revision aid!
on 20 May 2001
This book is clear and concise yet covers all the things a child needs to know for the subject at hand. I have just used this book as a revision aid with my 9 year old for Creative Writing and Comprehension. It is fun - children like the language used - and full of valuable helping points. I have been a teacher myself for 16 years - these books are excellent summaries! Can't remember the difference between a simile and a metaphor or what a compound sentence is? This will tell you! I can also highly recommend "The Tricky Bits" - more on grammar.
