Greg Bottrill's long awaited second book is now available to buy!
'School and the Magic of Children' is a follow up to Greg's hugely successful debut book 'Can I Go and Play Now'.
Discover just what it is that children need from education and why it’s so important for Early Years practice to echo upwards throughout their school journey.
‘School And The Magic of Children’ is an exploration of the very soul of childhood, leading us on an adventure into the world of Story via Drawing Club and then into a new lens to look through at play itself with the concept of Play Projects.
