Let's Talk About Toys by Keri Finlayson

This exciting new series cover the six EYFS areas of learning and development through a variety of age appropriate themes. It fulfils the aims of the 'Every Child a Talker' initiative and provides a wealth of stimulating activities to encourage speaking and listening. Spoken communication, making particular use of the performing and visual arts, especially role play and drama continues to be a key focus of many early years settings. Let's Talk About will provide Early Years practitioners with the resources they need to provide children with entertaining, exciting and stimulating language activities that foster and enhance early language learning.


'brilliant little series of books...they help to promote verbal communication skills within an environment where children can enjoy and feel safe to experiment with language.'

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

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.
