The layout is really clear and very easy to follow for both staff, students and parents. It would be prefect as a transition unit into secondary school." M Haslett, English Teacher

The resource will help students acquire a really good understanding of different types of books and significantly has many ways in which the students will become reflective readers exploring their choices and ideas."C Webb, English Teacher

"This resource was absolutely fantastic!
