What On Earth...?

What On Earth...?

Knowledge in context

What I love most about Christopher Lloyd's wallbooks is that they enable the learner to see a huge amount of information simultaneously.  He has written a range of titles from history and Shakespeare to science and sport all of which are brilliant:  well-researched and engagingly illustrated.

Chris also delivers talks to children and adults based on his books.  My own children have attended three of them and loved them - and learnt a great deal; their favourite is the Shakespeare talk, which they attended with a small group of friends.  The talks are interactive and (extremely) fast-paced.  They are challenging and funny with a good balance of questions, participation and well-delivered information.

A new book with a set of activities as a companion to the wallbooks will be published later this year.
