One Short For Football

Advantages: This box intimidates me...
Disadvantages: ... this one too. Sorry!

We were just picking the teams for football. Away on a family and friends weekend there should have been plenty of people to choose from. We had Conor, Kieran, Dominic, Olivia, Marnie and four volunteer adults but suddenly all the other grown-ups had ...

Flying Without Wings

Advantages: Great story to help children understand grief and depression
Disadvantages: None really, although it might upset sensitive children

...several Jacqueline Wilson books. My eldest three (aged 12 ½, 11 and 10) are all fans of hers. So today, when I had the urge to read a whole book in a couple of hours, I picked up one called Vicky Angel and read it. The story begins hap ...

Can't put it down.

Advantages: Very moving, and funny. It's easy to get hold of, and suitable for all ages.
Disadvantages: Some parts are very sad, and the end of the story is quite hard to make sense of. I had to read it twice!
