TWO New Books!

Announcement: I have two new books coming out in 2021. EEK!

One is called Time for School. It is all the games I have been playing with Ewan since he started school to support his learning from home. Of course, they are all simple, quick and easy five minute games which are for spellings, reading, phonics, times tables, number bonds etc. As well as some of the tips and tricks I’ve picked up on the way. I’m very much hoping it’ll be a handy guide to support you and your growing kiddos through those first few years of school where we are all a bit unsure about this new adventure. I’ve included what’s expected from our kids from a teachers point of view and also what we can do at home to help make homework more ‘family fun’ than ‘let’s all run’. Roughly for ages 4-8.

You can pre-order Time for School from Waterstones or Amazon now, it will be out in April 2021, just as we are all finding out about school places here in England for 2021 starters. Here are the links.

The second book will be out in summer 2021 and is called On the Go. It’s going to be a smaller book you can chuck in your bag for when you’re heading out. It’ll be full of five minute games for restaurants and waiting rooms. For on trains, in cars and on planes. For family get togethers. And ways to take as little as possible with you on trips away that’ll can still keep the kids entertained. For ages 1-100 I am hoping. A little companion of five minute tricks to keep your wee nose miners from buggin’ you constantly when out and about!

It can also be pre-ordered now from Amazon and Waterstones and the links are below. Pre-orders massively help me and my publishers out so if you do hit these buttons I am hugely grateful to you.

Thanks so much for all your support. Without everyone buying my first book this would never have happened. I was just absolutely thrilled that I got to even write one book, let alone a trio! I still can’t believe it. But now I REALLY need to get back to work finishing them, because I want them to be as well loved as the first one has been. Messages from grateful parents are what keep me going. That alongside tea and chocolate oranges, of course!
