  • This book has turned around my student

    I am a volunteer coach with a scheme called ‘Read Easy’ which helps adult non-readers to read and have been using the book ’A Man About the House’ as a supplementary reader. This book has turned my reader round from hating books to wanting to turn the page to see what happens next.
