5.0 out of 5 stars Great read, 13 Jun. 2012
This review is from: A Dog Called Homeless (Paperback)
My 7 year old daughter has polished this off over the last week and found it very hard to put down, to the point where we've had to physically remove it from her most evenings to stop her reading too late. A sweet and in parts sad story of a young girl and a wolfhound and a dad who is struggling to get over his wife's death. Short chapters, so good for reading together a bit at a time.

How To Train Your Dragon
How To Train Your Dragon

5.0 out of 5 stars unputdownable, 10 Sept. 2011
We are all hooked on this series, particularly our nearly 7 year old. We love the books, all with a good mix of great stories, silly names (Stoic the Vast, Gobber the Belch, Valhallarama, Mogadon the Meathead, Snotface Snotlout), funny illustrations and last but not least, dragonese (Neah crappa inna di hoosus, pishyou. Mi mama no likeit yum yum on di bum). We are also totally hooked on the audio books read by David Tennant, who is absolutely superb and has enlivened many hours of summer car journeys. Thorougly recommended in both formats.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful, 16 Feb. 2011
My 6 year old daughter needed some extra practice on her maths. The emphasis at her school is much more on reading which she is already good at. I originally assumed that she would quite quickly get the clever way of doing things but it's not that easy, it takes a lot of practice and seemingly more than her school has time to give.

This workbook has really caught her imagination with all the wizardy introductions and she is now happy to work through a page at a time with little if any prompting. The gold star stickers go down well too. The bonus is that because it's not actual school homework she is much more inclined to get on with it.

We have started with the Age 5-6 book to make it easy and so encourage her to continue and will have to wait for feedback from the school to tell how useful it has been. My initial impression though is that it is beginning to help. I have already bought the next book up.
