About The Little Book of Big Projects

This book takes child-friendly themes and suggests ideas for turning
these into large-scale collaborative projects with real impact. The
ideas are starting points and the emphasis is on problem solving,
collaboration and thinking skills rather than the end product, although photos of already completed projects help
to inspire along the way! The suggestions in the book allow for
'children to use talk to organise, sequence and clarify thinking and
ideas and ask questions about why things happen and how things work.'
EYFS 2007


“'There are so many ideas for collaborative, 'hands-on' projects set out in this book...fabulous to see that all of the projects make use of reclaimed and recycled materials. Colourful illustrations and photographs,step-by-step instructions of 'what you do' and supporting key vocabulary help to make working through a project a straightforward and satisfying prospect.'” –  Early Years Educator (October 2010)
