‘An excellent resource. It is well written, has page references, illustrations… The teacher’s introduction was most helpful…It also keeps to the spec well as regarding themes, and the layout deliberately avoided narrative/chronological answers. The resource enhances learning by consolidating knowledge of the texts, but treads the tightrope well between too much and too little detail. Its educational value would be to stretch the most able by some of the activities while reassuring those who might get confused between the texts.’ – L Ashley, HoD & Peer Reviewer
