Not Giving Up I Can Do It by Lesley Harker


Not Giving Up I Can Do It by Lesley Harker

This delightful picture book helps children to understand why it is rewarding to persevere with a task. Most of us don't get things right the first time, but it's good not to give up. Young children can discover how learning to do new things, with a little patience and practice, can make life more interesting. Discussion boxes offer an adult opportunities to discuss the issues directly with their child audience. Charmingly clear illustrations give readers immediate access to complex situations and feelings and provide further stimulus for discussion. Notes for teachers and parents, plus suggested further resources, help adults to make the most of the learning opportunities inherent in the book.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
