I’ve just been notified that my book ‘100 Ways Your Child Can Learn Through Play‘ by ME! Georgina Durrant is now available to pre-order from all major online bookstores (always wanted to say that!!) and wanted to make sure you were one of the first people to get to pre-order it!

Here’s the link to amazon to have a nosey and pre-order it.
And here’s the picture of the front cover and all the details below! Check out the celebrity endorsements at the bottom!!!

‘Packed full of 100 creative and engaging activities for young children with special educational needs, this book enables you to have fun and enjoy developing your child’s skill-based learning with them.

From building biscuit construction sites and rainbow ice towers to playing dentists, nail salons and post office workers, the variety and creativity featured on every page of this book means you’ll never have a dull day with your child again! With activities for rainy days, in the garden, on walks and more, there’s something new to learn wherever you go.

With charming black and white line illustrations to depict each activity, this is a great way to connect with your children with SEN, while building their life skills at the same time.’


As a parent of a SEN child, I’ve known how wonderful it can be but also how much help we need … this book is fun, interactive AND educational – great reading for parents like us! — Carol Vorderman MBE, Broadcaster and Educator

This book is a genuinely wonderful resource. Parenting is a daunting task for anyone, particularly if you have a child with special educational needs. Georgina Durrant, through her years as a teacher (and mum!), has developed a wide assortment of activities to engage your child in ways that are rewarding and effective and above all, FUN. Use this book! — Rob Delaney, BAFTA winning co-creator and star of Channel 4’s Catastrophe

Georgina Durrant has created a simple and adaptable resource that highlights the value of play and the array of skills that can be developed within it. With activities for inside and out, there’s something to suit everyone, whatever the weather! — Elaine Scougal, SEN parent/blogger, Dundee

It’s been so tough for children during the pandemic, not being able to see friends & just play with them. But playing is also key to building thriving brains, bodies, and social bonds?all important in today’s world. Research shows play can improve children’s abilities to plan, organise, get along with others, and regulate emotions. Play also helps with language, maths and social skills, and even helps children cope with stress. So, I can’t recommend Georgina Durrant’s ‘100 Ways Your Child Can Learn Through Play’ highly enough. It’s bursting with fun activities to do in the garden, on a walk, sitting still or on a rainy day. Your kids will love it & you’ll be taking care of their mental health at this difficult time too while having LOADS of fun! –– Sue Atkins BBC, Disney and ITV ‘This Morning’ Parenting Expert & Author of ‘ The Can Do Kid’s Journal: Discover your Confidence Superpower!’

And P.S. When you do get your copy I would love it if you could write a review on amazon, apparently even with my endorsements from Carol Vorderman (!)…. reviews still make a massive difference and I would really appreciate it. 
P.P.S if you’re not a fan of Amazon, if you google ‘100 Ways Your Child Can Learn Through Play’ you can pre-order it from all sorts of places like Waterstones and WH-Smiths.
