Reviews

Susan Elkin's new book is an excellent resource for English teachers. Offering a varied range of both fiction and non-fiction passages for study, as well as countless opportunities for pupils to read and write themselves, it promises to prepare pupils in an effective and thorough way for entrance exams at both 11+ and 13+. However, it is perhaps the book's ability to engender an interest in the language we use, as well as the many suggestions for further reading, that excited me most. As well as providing a wealth of activities to make the classrom a vibrant and exciting place, it also seeks to foster a lively and active involvement in literature, encouraging puils to read with enjoyment. Rebecca Connet, ISEB This excellent book has provoked and delighted our Year 6 boys in class and helped them to enjoy seeing how English works. Their creative writing jumped forward as a result of meeting Susan Elkin's first book. Nigel Ramage, Papplewick School
