Pre-order Items

Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario – the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

For more information, and to see the full list of pre-order items for your subject, see the Future Publication Dates

"Accessible, enjoyable, stimulating... The fact that a community writing group has produced this is lovely... Barbara [author] has obviously thought hard about the needs and practicalities of making this useable with her client group."
M Dunn, speech and drama coach, involved in performance workshops and reading with older people, independent reviewer

"It helped greatly with recalling events in the residents' lives and prompted lots of discussion, which is good for language development."
N Wood, Health & Social Care Assessor, independent reviewer

What do care homes have to say about this resource? (3118)
"Short stories help to entertain residents with different interests at the same time... The stories also bring back memories... It is easy to handle because pages can be taken out." — A Becht, Lounge Supervisor & Activity Co-ordinator at Sage Nursing Home, ZigZag Customer
"The resource would enable carers to gain greater understanding and depth of knowledge about the people they are caring for. It gives the opportunity to start a conversation... I liked the fact that there was a mixture of stories and not all in the same theme." — A Daniel, Health & Social Care BTEC Manager and Independent Reviewer
"The questions, and any others that came to mind would prompt discussion, a much needed stimulus in a care home." — C Farrar, Care Home Owner and Independent Reviewer
