Can learning your times tables and grammar actually be fun?

Are your little ones still struggling to get to grips with grammar? Or are they getting tied up with their times tables? This month, award-winning illustrator Jennie Maizels has designed two exciting new editions of her fantastic books: The Great Grammar Book, and The Terrific Times Tables Book. Packed full of pop-ups and bold artwork, these interactive titles are perfect for turning tricky subjects into a whole world of fun!

Making grammar as easy as A, B, C, The Great Grammar Book is full of clever, fun ways to help you understand nouns, punctuation, forming sentences, and much much more. Meet Alan the Sheep and move him over the page to learn about adjectives, use a mirror to find out about pronouns, and even take Pipsqueak the Dog for a walk in the pop-up garden to understand all about prepositions.

Once you’ve mastered grammar, move on to your times tables with The Terrific Times Tables Book! Full to the brim with just as many pop-ups and flaps as The Great GrammarBook, you’ll be reciting your times tables in your sleep in no time. Help grow the garden with your three times tables, or join Frederick Four and his fiendish friends for a gruesome picnic. You can even help an octopus put her shoes on whilst learning your eight times table! Making maths as easy as 1, 2, 3, this book is surely the most entertaining way to learn your times tables.

Take a sneak peek inside the book with this little video we made:
