What people have to say about our books!

The books and activities are a learning treasure chest. There has been marked improvement in children’s vocabulary, communication and socialisations skills and therefore, an improvement in their overall mental and emotional dispositions.

– Teacher in Trinidad and Tobago

  

Experiencing high quality social and emotional learning is arguably as important now as it has ever been, so to have found such an accessible, engaging and effective programme has been a constant source of reassurance and joy!  Not least because the stories, activities and resources are consistently appealing, user-friendly and so well designed for the virtuous purposes they wish to serve.  I only wish we’d had access to it sooner, including when I was in Nursery!”

– Teacher in the UK

 

“Mothers have become very interested in the Programme, saying that they have noticed a difference in the way their children behave at home.” 

– Teacher in Mexico

 

They responded positively and with great enthusiasm to the books. They enjoyed learning about different people, different cultures, different languages.”

– Teacher in Botswana

The books are wonderful … they speak to the heart of the children, the illustrations are beautiful … Thank you to all the writers.  Wonderful job!”

– A teacher in Canada
