This is a magical image to appeal to children of all ages. It can be read as a bit Harry Potterish with a suggestion of wizardry and objects with special powers – that will have huge appeal to some children. But then try placing it with science books and it suddenly becomes a celebration of the power of science to unlock amazing discoveries.
You can use this superbly designed pack of display material with older and younger children at different times – it’s the books you put next to it that will define who comes to look. It’s also a great way to mix fiction and non-fiction to get children who stick to only one to consider crossing over.
