I hope you’ve enjoyed a happy summer, ours has been busy! In response to continued requests we’ve been hard at work developing a fantastic series of Touch to See books all about Science for Key Stages 1, 2 and 3. Look out for their arrival on our library shelves in coming months.


As ever, thank you to all those who make our work possible.


Best Wishes.
