This is a brand new version of the bestselling enquiry desk reference text, "Know it All, Find it Fast", for those working with children and young people in schools, public libraries and at home. After a general introduction covering essential information about education and the curriculum there is a comprehensive A-Z of topics covering school subjects from science and maths to reading and literacy, and more general themes such as children's health, wellbeing and hobbies. Each topic is broken down into useful sections that will guide your response: typical questions - 'Are there any homework clubs in my area?'; Definitions - 'Homework is...'; what to consider: environment and time of day; where to look - homework guidelines, print resources and websites; and, how to have success - how to evaluate resources. This is an indispensable guide for librarians and teachers in schools and public libraries working with children and young people. It will also be a handy reference for parents and anyone working with children and young people in other organizations such as health visitors.
