Road School 
Learning Through Exploration and Experience

By  Sue Cowley

Frustrated by a regime of statutory testing, and keen for a midlife adventure, Sue Cowley and her partner decided to step out of the system, and set off on the educational adventure of a lifetime with their children. Road School is the story of their family’s adventures around Europe and across China, and what they learned along the way. Part comedy travelogue, part parenting guide, part educational philosophy, Road School asks you to consider what ‘an education’ really means and offers tips for anyone planning their own learning adventure.

WTF Just Happened?
How to Make Better Decisions by Asking Yourself Better Questions
By Martin Goodyer

How great would it be to learn from other people’s mistakes rather than having to make our own? In WTF Just Happened? Martin Goodyer presents a hilarious compilation of catastrophes to help readers do just this. Drawing on his experience as a psychologist and taking the perspective of a behavioural change coach, Martin offers insights into people’s often irrational behaviour and suggests ways to avoid such behaviour ourselves. Reading this book won’t stop bad things from happening – but it can prevent you from making it worse if they do. This is not a self-help book. The self-help bit is up to you.

An ideal book for anyone interested in human behaviour, personal development or avoiding mistakes by learning from others’. If you only buy one book to help you handle life’s challenges, then make it this one.

Den Building
Creating imaginative spaces using almost anything
By Cathy Cross, Jane Hewitt

Every child needs a special space of their own where they can let their imagination run wild. When you become a den builder, the most ordinary of spaces can become a magical, secret world. A den, or a fort, is a special space that you create for yourself, a space where you can use your imagination, a space where you can play, or read, just chill out or be creative.

In Den Building, Jane Hewitt and Cathy Cross show you how, with just a few household objects and these imaginative ideas, you can make hundreds of wonderful dens, with minimal mess and fuss. Using found items, creativity and imagination you can transform any space into a completely new environment. There are plenty of rainy-day activities and ideas for getting outside in the fresh air.

Den Building is a great gift and also makes a great resource for organised groups, such as nurseries, Scouts and Guides and afterschool clubs.

Gilbert Filbert and his big MAD box
By Andy Gilbert, Ian Gilbert

Gilbert Filbert and His Big MAD Box, by Ian Gilbert and Andy Gilbert, is the story of one boy’s desire to make a difference and help his mother find her smile again.

It is a book about a boy, a box and a battle for a penguin but, more than that, it is a tale about families, hope and how to make dreams come true. When Gilbert’s school project challenges him to ‘make a difference’, grandma introduces him to the mysterious big MAD box. Each of the sides helps Gilbert to focus on a different aspect of the challenge: setting a goal, identifying the reasons behind the goal, developing self-belief, possibility thinking, making a plan and taking action. Finally, Gilbert learns to appreciate what’s inside and celebrate his unique qualities and attributes, which have helped him to succeed at his challenge.

As grandma tells Gilbert, any problem is really an opportunity in a hat. The story is deliberately split into short chapters, each relating to a step in the thinking process. The resources provided mean readers can plan to make a difference of their own and develop their possibility thinking.

Suitable for young people (aged 11+) to use on their own thinking adventures. Also suitable for parents, teachers or anyone working with teenagers who wants to join in the journey.
