Overview


More Interesting Than Your Teacher is an innovative take on learning. Stuart Wright believes that schools go about learning the wrong way, focusing too much on the details and confusing children. More Interesting Than Your Teacher sets to correct this and tackle those tricky subjects in an accessible bite sized way that will help children (and adults) get their head round the information.

With a wide range of subjects tackled including, science, geography, languages, social history, animals and naming. Why is it colder up at higher altitudes even though you are closer to the sun? And did you know that only 5% of the world surface is habitable? That Jackson Pollack’s painting No. 5 is one of the most expensive paintings ever sold? That one of Peru’s biggest exports is bird poo?

More Interesting Than Your Teacher has the answers to these questions and hundreds of others. With the facts presented in short, easy to understand language and accompanied by fun illustrations, this book can help children of all ages learn vital information without hours of study.
