Teachers LOVE it!

I was thrilled to receive such a lovely review of my personalised alphabet book from Ready Steady School: an organisation dedicated to helping children become school ready. Here’s what they say…

Whether you are looking for a beautiful keepsake book, a special birthday present or simply a book to share at home with your little one I can honestly recommend this one is a must! Personalised Alphabet books with your child’s name to really engage them, bright and colourful illustrations, something new to spot each time we pick it up! The language is rich with rhyme and alliteration and the book can be used on many levels to develop a whole range of language and literacy skills. Thank you Niamh – We love our book!

About Dr Niamh

When I was a little girl (a very, very long time ago), I used to love learning new, really big words like ‘discombobulate’. As I grew, my love of words grew too, until I loved them so much, I could not stop writing them down. One day, as I was scribbling a particular word, a very peculiar thing happened. The word shouted at me, “Stop! Don’t put me there!” As you can imagine, I was shocked and nearly fell off my chair. When I recovered somewhat, I said to the word, “Could you stop shouting, please? I am not used to it.” Can you guess what happened next? No! I thought not. The word said, “I might be small, but I will misbehave if you do not use me properly. I will not tell the story you would like me to tell. I will say something entirely different!” I dropped my pen. I hoped that by dropping my pen, the word would stop talking. Alas! It did not. It carried on chitterchobbling, even after the ink had dried. I was in a pickle. I could not allow my words to run away with my story, now could I? I don’t know about you, but when this sort of thing happens, there is only one thing left to do if you prefer not to spend your time arguing. “Very well,” said I. “I will do as you ask if you will just be quiet and allow me to concentrate.” Since that day, I have been paying special attention to every word I invite into my stories. After all, a story should say exactly what it means to say and not be led astray. With love from Dr. Niamh, Ph.D in Learning Through The Imagination and Founder of Dr Niamh Children's Books.
