Take Me To School: A School Journal for Young Explorers
“Wonderfully portable, this journal doesn’t skimp on style. . . As parents, what appealed to us in particular was the educational component: there are loads of facts on the school theme, with info about pioneering teachers throughout history and how uniforms differ from one country to the next. . . We love the fun educational tidbits and gorgeous colours.” -- The Independent
“A fantastic pocket-sized journal that lays out your school adventure in easy-to-complete sections, stimulating your imagination and helping you along with your first tentative steps in your school adventure.” -- ReadItDaddy
