Katie Daynes has written oodles of books for Usborne, from lifting the flaps on germs and poo, through things to spot in the sea and at school, to the life stories of Nelson Mandela and Marie Antoinette. She wrote My First Chess Book after being taught by her son, Joe Birks, who became the British Under 9 Chess Champion in 2017. She now lives in Yorkshire with her architect husband, two inquisitive children and a hamster called Toffee. When she’s not writing books, Katie likes walking on the blustery moors, meeting friends for coffee and playing competitive board games.
A humorous book that follows the history of rubbish. While the text of this book may not be accessible to very young children, it nonetheless has a wealth of information that is made all the more easy to assimilate through the wonderful illustrations that accompany it.
Nursery Education Plus
