Reviews

'The book is a fine example of how a teacher can stimulate interest in his pupils. It is clear that [the children] have much enjoyed what they have learnt.'
Ron Jarman, Archetype: Science Group of the Anthroposophical Society in Great Britain newsletter, March 2006

'A treasure trove of ideas for class teachers with additional tasks for gifted students. Impressive presentation ... which can inspire experienced and new teachers alike.'
