The 'Creative Writing Tutor' scheme provides a lively series of themed booklets that will stimulate your child's imagination and inspire him or her to write in a more interesting way and to achieve better results. The booklets provide 'a tutor' for the child, fun features and stories to read, follow up activities to complete, harder vocabulary to prepare children for more advanced writing and many helpful tips and techniques to improve writing style. They are excellent for stretching fast workers and able writers or preparing for writing tasks in 11+ examinations. The New Head Teacher helps to encourage non-fiction writing through reports, letters and e-mails.

This classic text once again provides a compelling topically-organized introduction to child development. Parke et al incorporate multiple perspectives in exploring the processes of child development. With recurring pedagogical features to ensure students see the interrelatedness of chapters and concepts and the chronological development of children, the authors have also taken care to further their student-friendly presentation by shortening the text in this edition. This has been accomplished without cutting the book’s highly-regarded child psychopathology chapter.
