Product Information

The real test for any marketing claims laid on classroom resources lies with real classroom practice and exposure to real children. In the Wild books passed this test with flying colours when I used them recently across three reception classes, and they generated a real buzz of enthusiastic sharing and questioning!. Its success is due to its fabulous photography, making all aspects of the animal's life visually accessible, and giving rise to excellent opportunities for discussion and questioning. -- TES Teacher 20050304
