Parents in Touch
The success of the book is proven by the fact this is the third edition; it retains key material and has been updated and revised to include two new chapters - the theme of the creative curriculum and supporting trainees to see how effective curriculum design can enhance creative teaching. An excellent way to refresh established teaching and bring in new ideas which will delight children. With plenty of good examples, this gives lots of food for thought and motivation to extend creativity.
