Little books of life skills


About the Series

In our rapidly changing world, education is becoming less and less about imparting knowledge than it is about empowerment. We now want to make sure our children get the skills they need, not only to engage with and take responsibility for their own learning, but to successfully take part in a range of experiences throughout their lives.

The strategies and activities in the Little Books of Life Skills will help children see themselves as champions of their own world, a critical step in meeting the outcomes of the Every Child Matters agenda. Each title in the series will help children get the skills they need to enjoy and achieve – in school and beyond.
