Reviews

'In today's world, where children are so detached from the growing process, books like this play an important part and I was delighted to see this new series... It's also good encouragement towards getting our Five a Day. Well-chosen text makes this a good early reader. The colour photos are excellent.' - September 2013 - Parents in Touch 'Making the topic fun, this colourful book shows children aspects of healthy eating which they will have seen and can relate to. However, there are also images that will be new and intriguing to them. Lots of discussions could be developed from reading this book to a class, building their speaking and listening skills.' - May 2014 - Primary Teacher Update -- Shannon Brown Primary Teacher Update'

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.
