The games are fun and can be adapted to suit different ages (I would say up to about 7 depending on ability) and use equipment that most parents of young children will have around their home.
Now if you could write a book for teenagers Daisy I would be eternally grateful : )

This book explains EVERYTHING you need to know about starting school, in really easy terms… it really is invaluable for that reception year especially!! My daughter loves the games as do I, they are so easy to set up, in no less than 5 mins.. removing all that mum guilt! Thanks Daisy!
A well written book, that simply explains fun ways to learn through play. Using mainly household items and minimal set up time is an absolute winner. The first book was really good, this book is amazing as it supports the new phase of school life we have begun in this house.
