It’s also a handy time-saver for teachers, providing as it does excellent examples that demonstrate grammar in action. - Love Reading 4 Schools, Joanne Owen

Intended as a quick reference guide, it offers a portable replacement to the types of vocabulary posters you find on many classroom walls. It's an imaginative and affordable resource that every classroom should have. - Class Reads, John Bolton

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, accessible book
By Becky on 3 April 2021
This book is fantastic. I'm an experienced teacher and I am so excited to add this resource to my classroom, supporting KS2 children with their writing. It is so user friendly and will be easily accessed and navigated by the children in my class. It is much clearer and simpler to use than other books that can be used to help descriptive writing, and for a fraction of the price! The way the information is presented in categories is really useful, and there is not so much information that the pages risk being overwhelming. I would absolutely recommend this book to support descriptive writing in the classroom. Thank you Andrew Jennings!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little book for budding writer or those struggling with writing!
By Moonstone1319 on 25 July 2022
This book is great. It’s a go-to if your child struggles to come up with words or ideas for writing or if they are budding writers and could do with some help to structure a piece of writing. Words are listed under topics such as cities, food and drink, transport and there are sections on Adjectives, nouns etc a great learning aid.
