I’m very excited that my book ‘100 Ways Your Child Can Learn Through Play‘ will be published on Monday! You will be able to buy it from any of the major book shops either online or in person. You can pre-order it already too.
Tonight (Thursday) is the virtual book launch on Zoom. I know many of my readers have signed up to come along and watch (don’t worry it’s not one where you have to participate!) but if there’s anyone else who would love to come but hasn’t signed up please drop me an email now firstname.lastname@example.org before 8pm and I will send you the zoom code. I’d love to have you there.
If you’re new to zoom, I promise it is less complicated than it sounds, if you click on the link I send you it will direct you to it (and tell you what to do) on your computer, iPad or phone. There’s also the option to keep your video turned off it you don’t want to be on camera.
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!’
