No Chrissie. Writing a list of the kings of England, or quadratic algebra equations, on a tennis ball and then driving it into your daughter's skull... is not an approved teaching method! Intuitive, but not approved!
I often buy my books from Lisa. As a busy mum I don't have time to troll through all of the choices. I simply tell her what my daughter's topics at school are and what level she is at and she suggests books for me. She always comes up trumps.
