Book Description

A brand new version of the best-selling enquiry desk reference text, Know it All, Find it Fast.

Specifically designed for those working with children and young people in schools, public libraries and at home.
Including an invaluable overview of the education system and the school curriculum as well as a comprehensive listing of useful resources by topic, this A-Z covers school subjects from science and maths to reading and literacy, and more general themes such as children's health, wellbeing and hobbies

Each topic is broken down into useful sections that will help to guide your response;

• Typical questions outline common queries such as ‘Have you got any information about volcanoes?’
• Considerations provides useful hints and tips i.e. ‘Geography now encompasses not only physical and human geography but also environmental geography, social geography, geology and geopolitics.’
• Where to look lists relevant printed, digital and online resources with useful annotations explaining their scope and strengths

Readership: This is the must-have quick reference tool arming librarians and teachers with the knowledge to deal with any queries thrown at them from children and young people as well as their parents and caregivers. It will also be a handy reference for parents and anyone working with children and young people in other organizations such as homework clubs and youth workers.
