A Word From The Bard.....

“To be or not to be: that is the question, whether tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune”

Book of the Month

Age: 9+
Parents will know Matthew Syed as an Olympic table-tennis player, Times journalist and author of Black Box Thinking and Bounce.
In You Are Awesome Syed switches his attention to younger readers, aiming to give them the confidence to have a go at different things in life and achieve their potential. As he eloquently explains, success is earned rather than pre-ordained in life and if you practise and practise at something the odds are that you’ll get better at it. He describes how he started playing table tennis against his brother in the garage at home and eventually became a British champion.
Syed also features examples of ‘famous failures’– people who failed the first time round but were determined to keep going. One quote comes from the late Steve Jobs, the tech visionary and founder of Apple, who said: ‘I’m convinced that about half of what separates successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.’
With lively illustrations and graphics, lots of personal anecdotes and suggestions for further reading, Syed’s book is engaging, entertaining and confidence boosting. Children will be motivated by it – and so will their parents.

New Book

Running on Empty by SE Durrant is a great read for children aged 8+. This is a warm-hearted and thought-provoking read about an 11 year old London boy who, though a talented athlete, has many challenges to overcome. A great alternative to a chocolate egg for your son this Easter…(your daughter may enjoy it too).
