Spaced repetition. The important thing is to keep the main thing the main thing. Be clear about what the core knowledge is and stick with it. Knowledge builds on knowledge. https://t.co/4mME5dqMfb

Happy to all those celebrating. It is difficult during such festivals when people are not able to be with the people they love.

Niamh says: I like your book because it is true. Your book makes me feel happy and sad at the same time. Your book taught me that you should not leave rubbish everywhere. I think that Isatou is kind and giving.

Reuben says: I liked that Isatou helps the animals. The book made me sad because animals are dying. The book is showing me how important it is to recycle, reuse and reduce. Bags take centuries to decompose. What is Isatou doing now?

Eric says: When you went to the Gambia which of your visits did you write into your book & was it you who bought the first purse? I liked your book because I really love turtles & all species are endangered. How long did it take you to write it?

Ethan says: I like your book because it encourages people to stop throwing plastic on the ground and start to clean up the country. It makes me want to stop using plastic.
