Picking up a handful of good textbooks is easy but trying to build a more extensive collection is much more time consuming.
Askews Library Service has recognised this and created Teachers Needs to provide ready-made book collections for primary schools.
Teachers Needs is making its first appearance at the Education Show and is offering Kites Collections, 36 packages costing between pound;50 and 100.
The collections are tailored to key stages 1 and 2.
Catherine Hodson of Teachers Needs says: "There is a lot of material being published but primary teachers don't always have the time to read all of the books. We deal with over 900 publishers and we are sifting the best material." A 20 per cent discount is available to visitors who buy a collection at the show. STAND PV76.
