Little Gems  free pdf 'Nana, your face needs ironing!' 'The nativity play's off, Miss -- the Virgin Mary's got nits.' 'When you're dead, Grandpa, can I have your watch?' 'When I was little, I thought that God was like Captain Birdseye without the fishfingers.' Young children are nothing if not honest, and their honesty is invariably disarming and comical. Who better to discover their innermost thoughts than best-selling author and former school inspector Gervase Phinn? From his lifetime of school visits, and talking to parents and grandparents, Gervase has put together a delightful compilation of children's wise words, insightful observations on life and their amusing comments about others.

About Gervase Phinn

For fourteen years Gervase Phinn taught in a range of Yorkshire schools until, in 1984, he became general adviser for language development in Rotherham. Four years later he moved to North Yorkshire where he spent ten years as a school inspector, which has provided much of the material for his bestselling Dales books and his collections of children's poetry. He now teaches, lectures and directs courses throughout the country and abroad, and is in constant demand both as a speaker at social after-dinner events and at educational conferences. Gervase Phinn is a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, the visiting professor of education at the University of Teesside and an honorary fellow of St Johns College, York. He is married with four grown-up children.
