Synopsis

String Games by Richard Darsie

Everyone loves Cat's Cradle, but there are many other string games that are fun to play, by yourself or with friends. These games come from different places and cultures from around the world - as you learn how to make the looping patterns, you will also find out some of the ethnic stories and tribal origins behind them. With so many great String Games, you will always have some something fun to do: start with very simple games, and then teach them to your friends; graduate to games that are a little more complicated; several of the games require two people to complete them; other creations are three-dimensional and provide mystifying tricks; and developing dexterity skills with String Games builds confidence, inspires imagination and initiates you into a long and proud tradition. This work comes in full colour throughout with over 200 colour photographs and step-by-step drawings.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

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

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

I love lovereading4kids because I’ve read amazing books I would never have picked up, and its opened doors to new genre’s I now love.

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

Emily Jacques

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
