'This is a very practical guide to a teaching approach that enables children to become more powerful learners; it is also an opportunity to spend time with a big-hearted person who understands what happens for children in school and how circles can help them grow.'

-- James Park
The book is well written and has a well-structured layout. there are photocopiable resources and a games index, which is invaluable for finding and planning activities quickly...The book has inspired me to try out some of the ideas and even demonstrate them to colleagues. Were I a mainstream teacher, I would find it a useful resource to ensure all children are fully included in circle time. -- Helen Punter-Bruce, specialist teacher East Sussex
