About the Author

Following a career in teaching, 6 years headship of an Infant school with a large nursery, and 4 years as an LEA adviser in Leicestershire, Sally Featherstone has been working as an independent trainer and consultant for the past 9 years. Her work covers a wide range of current issues in the management and assessment of learning in the early years. Sally's particular interests are in the development of independent learning, whole brain learning, gender, and play in the early years. She is the series editor for the successful Little Book series and is the co-author of the recently completed series of Little Baby Books. She has worked with Nicola Call on the titles Thinking Child and Thinking Child Resource Book, both addressing whole brain learning in the Foundation Stage, and with Ros Bayley on Foundations for Independence, We Can Do It, Smooth Transitions, and Boys and Girls Come out to Play. In 2005, Sally wrote Making it Work in Year 1 specially for teachers aiming to build on Smooth Transitions, and has since worked with Ros Bayley and Lynn Broadbent on the Carrying on in Key Stage 1 series. New titles Sally has been involved in are the Baby and Beyond Series, L is For Sheep, Again, Again and Like Bees, not Butterflies. Sally divides her time between writing and training and conferences for practitioners working with children from birth to eight.


Any learning environment, home, classroom, nursery or staff room would be all the richer for having a set of these books on their shelves for reference. * Early Years Educator *
