Summary of Peer Review
I have not come across a resource of this kind before. There is much that I think is of value, particularly the choice of books, genres and styles – it is good to see Ted Hughes, Roald Dahl and C.S.Lewis featuring rather than purely contemporary authors. There seems to be a general regard for quality and genuine attempts at opening up the wonder and delight of reading and words to primary children.
