The Puffin Book of Utterly Brilliant Poetry is an amazing celebration - a wonderful collection of poems by ten outstanding poets. There is something here for all the family to share and enjoy, time after time. There are ten sections in the book, all illustrated in glorious full colour by a different illustrator, each as varied in their style as the poets. And an interview with the relevant poet begins each section, so you can find out a little more about them. The mix of vibrant colours and highly individual voices make this unique poetry collection truly and utterly brilliant! The Utterly Brilliant Poets are: Spike Milligan; Kit Wright; Michael Rosen; Charles Causley; Roger McGough; Benjamin Zephaniah; Brian Patten; Jackie Kay; John Agard; and Allan Ahlberg. 'Fast, funny, incongruous and gorgeously easy to digest.' Observer

Dies ist die Geschichte des größten Diebes aller Zeiten! Peter Nimble ist blind, aber er versteht es schon als kleiner Junge, seine verbleibenden Sinne bestens zu nutzen, und hat sich zu einem perfekten Dieb gemausert. Eines Tages stiehlt er eine geheimnisvolle Kiste, in der drei Paar Augen liegen. Als er das erste Paar einsetzt, findet er sich plötzlich in einer fremden Welt wieder. Dort wird er für eine besondere Mission auserwählt: Peter soll das »Verschwundene Königreich« aus den Händen eines heimtückischen Königs befreien. Mithilfe der magischen Augen und seines verzauberten Freundes Sir Tode beginnt für Peter eine atemberaubende Reise ... »Genau das, was Leser zwischen 9 und 24 von einer magischen Geschichte erwarten: teils Heldengeschichte, teils Waisensaga und absolut fesselnd.« Wall Street Journal »Mit der Fingerfertigkeit eines Gauklers schreibt Auxier Prosa, die alle Sinne anregt.« Kirkus Reviews

Bewegend, liebevoll und überraschend leicht erzählt – ein erstaunliches Debüt „Ich schaue mir alle Fotos an, die ich von Mum gemacht habe. Was diese Fotos gemeinsam haben, ist, dass sie zeigen, wie Mum lebt – so als ob jeder einzelne Tag von größter Bedeutung für sie wäre.“ Livs Mutter beginnt plötzlich, ihr die wichtigen Dinge des Lebens näherzubringen. Deshalb muss Liv jetzt - ob sie will oder nicht – • den ersten BH kaufen (obwohl sie noch keinen braucht) • lernen, wie man Spaghetti Bolognese kocht (obwohl ihre Mutter nicht kochen kann) • ein Schminktutorial mit ihrer Mum absolvieren (obwohl sie sich erst mit 16 richtig schminken darf) . Doch als ihre Mutter Liv sogar erlaubt, sich endlich Ohrringe stechen zu lassen, weiß sie, dass irgendetwas nicht stimmt. Bisher war ihre Mutter strikt dagegen. Außerdem ist sie nun immer öfter erschöpft und schläft viel. Liv spürt, dass sie ihr etwas verheimlicht, etwas, was ihr Leben für immer verändern wird ...

This indispensable resource, for teachers of pupils aged 7-13 years, consists of a series of graduated lesson plans aimed at improving children’s speaking and listening skills, their self-confidence and their motivation to learn, ultimately leading to better school performance. The scheme was developed and tested in schools during a four year period with over three thousand children and their teachers, and focuses on class and group activities that are enjoyable as well as instructive. All pupils are able to participate regardless of background, academic standing or facility in English, and the skills acquired are central to the National Curriculum for England and Wales Key Stages 2 and 3. Each lesson worksheet includes learning objectives, guidance on preparation and organisation, an activity guide, and follow-up suggestions, all presented in a clear and simple manner to lead the teacher step by step through the session. The materials are grouped into four levels of difficulty which combine to build a powerful range of abilities associated with persuasive and presentational speech, dialogue and debate, as well as developing the children’s command, use, and articulation of English. Each level consists of twelve starter lessons suitable for class-based group work, with sections preparing pupils for a variety of class competitions including public speaking, poetry reading and debating. The activities link naturally with other areas of the curriculum, and topics already being studied can easily be incorporated. In a parallel controlled research project highly significant gains in a nationally standardised test of non-verbal reasoning were made over a seven month period by children who followed the activities for one lesson a week compared to those who did not. These were well in excess of what would be expected for their increased age. Particularly high gains were made by children of lesser ability and those for whom English was an additional language. The improvements recorded were later confirmed by the schools’ own National Curriculum assessments of progress against targets, where on average the project children exceeded substantially the end of year forecasts made by their teachers.

Winner of the United Kingdom Literacy Association's Author Award 2011 for its contribution to extending children's literacy. Praise for the book: 'This book is about making readers. A compact summary of its contents would not do it justice. It is the accountof a life's work and it deserves thanks and readers. *****'. - Margaret Meek, Books for Keeps on-line, Number 185, November 2010. 'This book is a cornucopia of varied pleasures, offering something for all tastes, presented with an awareness of the complexities of the field and communicated with commitment, enthusiasm and deep knowledge'. - Eve Bearne, English 4-11, the primary school journal of The English Association, Number 42, Summer 2011. Choosing and Using Fiction and Non-Fiction 3-11 is a guide to the many kinds of text we want children to encounter, use and enjoy during their nursery and primary school years. So children’s non-fiction literature – including autobiography, biography, information and reference texts – is given equal status with fiction – nursery rhymes, picturebooks, novels, traditional tales, playscripts and poetry. The author addresses important issues and allows the voices of teachers, reviewers and children to be heard. The book supports teachers as they help children on their journey to becoming insightful and critical readers of non-fiction and sensitive and reflective readers of fiction. It also contains suggestions for practice which are in the spirit of the more flexible and creative approach to learning towards which primary schools are moving. It includes: help on using criteria to select quality texts of all kinds; annotated booklists for each kind of text for different age groups; suggestions for keeping a balance between print and screen-based texts; case studies showing teachers and children using texts in interesting and imaginative ways to support learning in English lessons and across the curriculum; advice on developing children’s visual and multimodal literacy; guidance on using the school library and embedding study skills in children’s wider purposes and learning; critiques of key theoretical perspectives and research projects. Although the main readership will be primary and student teachers, it is hoped that the book will be of interest and use to anyone concerned with the role of texts in children’s learning.

The content of this book is based on the Andy Croft's experience of working with children in over 400 UK schools and will provide teachers with ideas, games, examples and models that they can use in the classroom to encourage their children to become writers and readers through the practice of rhyme and rhythm. He strongly believes that you don't have to be 'good at English' to be able to enjoy the music of ordinary speech. Using rhythm and rhyme is a democratic creative act that is equally hard and equally easy for everyone. It has special rules which won't let you reach for the first word that comes into your head. Your words have to fit the pattern. You don't have to write anything down, but you do have to become a writer. And once you have become a writer, you might become a reader...
