Abstract

At first look, from a children's services worker's perspective, this looks like a 'pick up and play' kind of book. It has a colourful illustrated cover with lots of child-style drawings and words — myriads of which I had when I worked in schools — that contain bite-sized activities any group worker can pick up, quickly read and deliver a fun and engaging activity for children. Close attention should be paid to the tagline 'How to Build Relationships and Enable Change' though, because this is the substance of this easy to read and digestible book.
