really liked it

This book was an easy afternoon read, which made me feel good, and hopeful that I am doing the right thing by my child.

My favourite lesson, was that if a child is stumbling over a word, there is no point humiliating them by trying to make them sound it out (cos english language is not great for sounding out), you just tell them what it says, and move on, before they lose the gist of the sentence, and lose interest and hate reading. Such a sensible message.
