I am often asked about books that children might like

every child has their own preferences but often its difficult to know where to start looking:

this is a great list compiled by Bags of Books who have separated the books by age
they have compiled the more unusual books that kids are enjoying beyond the classic favourites we always think they will enjoy,

Never too early

For those starting their GCSE or A-level courses this year it might be worth pointing out that it's never too early to think about revision.   

The best time to make revision cards is when you understand the subject best.  That is usually when you are actually doing it in class - not two years later from a text book or old notes.  

If you try and make a few cards each week on what you've been learning by the time revision comes you'll have a huge head start. 

Make sure you keep them somewhere safe, where you can look over them little but often -- you'll be surprised how much you could take in.  

Lernstift - a spellchecking pen !

The Internet has made me aware of a pen that checks your spellings as you write !!!! Has anyone ever seen it in action ? Any chance it could cope with my terrible handwriting ?! It sounds like a lovely idea to me.
