Love it

Look again at Janet and Allan Ahlberg's classic, The Jolly Postman and Other People's Letters (Viking pound;11.99), says Janice Wetherell, Year 3 class teacher and library and resources co-ordinator at Bedfont junior school, London borough of Hounslow

"This will be well known to most readers and is usually familiar to te least bookish of Year 3s. It's a wonderful text to use in the literacy hour, and can even provide a useful source of ideas for design and technology."

We pay pound;40 for each recommendation published. Write to Love It, TESFriday, Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield, London E1W 1BX.E-mail:
