Clever Tykes is a series of three storybooks introducing children ages 6-9 to positive, enterprising role models to help them develop resourceful and creative behaviour.
In January 2017, every primary school in the United Kingdom was gifted a set of the Clever Tykes books as part of a partnership with Lloyds Banking Group. Primary schools also have access to free online resources that accompany the series.
The Clever Tykes characters are Walk-it Willow, Code-it Cody and Change-it Cho. Each character realises that there is something they are especially good at or passionate about, and they set about making this into their own venture. The stories incorporate the target literacy and numeracy skills for the specific age range and the entrepreneurial messages are subtle whilst important characteristics such as innovation, independence, goal-setting; hard work and resourcefulness are promoted.

What is the blogging assignment?
We are seeking independent reviews of our storybooks to help generate awareness of the Clever Tykes series and the accompanying online resources that UK primary schools now have available to them.
Your blog could include:
– an in-depth review of one or more of the individual stories
– feedback and quotes from the reader on what they thought of the story
– thoughts and comments on the importance of enterprise education
– ideas on how parents and/or teachers can use the books to their best effect
– comments on the impact of the books on the reader (did you notice a change in their behaviour, or the questions they asked?)
– comments on the ideas we share on the Clever Tykes website, about creating a generation of resourceful, creative and positive individuals.

– respect and influence in their field
Extra credit is given for blogs that aren’t primarily product review sites. We want to be represented by exciting, influential and knowledgeable bloggers who clearly know about children’s reading and/or these areas of education.
