I am sure that, like the majority of classroom teachers, the use of a story to introduce a topic is quite common.

News & Reviews
This warm and heartfelt review was written by Sue Briggs for Montessori International, issue 120 Winter 16/17. Many thanks for their wholehearted enthusiasm!
"I urge you to get hold of this marvellous book: well done Hawthorn Press for staying loyal to it." —Jay Ramsay on Sing Me The Creation
"Form drawing is in a way akin to meditation – ten minutes a day, when purposefully executed, confers considerable benefits. For those who like the right brain/left brain (creative side/logical side) theory, it definitely engages the right brain functions." —Trevor Dance on Form Drawing and Colouring
"Get it for yourself! Never mind the little ones." —Bookwitch on Findus Goes Fishing
"It is refreshing to see a book that puts science at the heart of learning, and links other subjects to the science, rather than the other way around." —Journal of Emergent Science on Science Through Stories
"The most annoying book I have ever read, as the author seems to have had a more interesting life than I’ve had." —John Cleese on Where on Earth is Heaven?
"Where fantasy and science fiction can tend towards the escapist, Deep Time brings us back to ourselves, to the land, to the idea of wilderness as something precious that we ought to preserve. It also, by cunning means, encourages us to look at our own time and place with fresh eyes, seeing connections and possibilities we might otherwise have missed. It delivers all of this, and more, in a fast placed action adventure plot that does not let up for some 700 pages." —Nimue Brown on Deep Time
