I am delighted and proud to present this, the eighth volume of Nottinghamshire Children Tell Tales. The young people of Nottinghamshire have imagination in abundance and, in the years this competition has been in existence, the entries have been an assortment of happy, sad, magical, humorous, tragic or scary stories and poems, but above all they are imaginative and that is all we ask. So, just open the cover, put your feet up and enjoy this collection of the 2016 finalist's stories and poems. - Julie Malone, Founder and President, New Writers UK

In Telling Tales, Joel Rosenthal takes us on a journey through some familiar sources from fourteenth- and fifteenth-century England to show how memories and recollections can be used to build a compelling portrait of daily life in the late Middle Ages. Rosenthal is a senior medievalist whose work over the years has spanned several related areas, including family history, women's history, the life cycle, and memory and testimony. In Telling Tales, he brings all of these interests to bear on three seemingly disparate bodies of sources: the letters of Margaret Paston, depositions from a dispute between the Scropes and Grosvenors over a contested coat of arms, and Proof of Age proceedings, whereby the legal majority of an heir was established. In Rosenthal's hands these familiar sources all speak to questions of testimony, memory, and narrative at a time when written records were just becoming widespread. In Margaret Paston, we see a woman who helped hold family and family business together as she mastered the arduous and complex task of letter writing. In the knights whose tales were elicited for the Scrope and Grosvenor case, we witness the bonding of men in arms in the Hundred Years War. From the Proofs of Age, we have brief tales that are rich in the give-and-take of daily life in the village - memories of baptisms, burials, a trip to market, a fall from a roof, or marriage to another juror's sister.

In most churches, Christian education for children is run by enthusiastic volunteers from the worshipping community. But how much support and training do they receive? Do they get the opportunity to explore and apply principles of child development or current theories of faith development? And to what extent are they supported by their ministers and congregations with a clear focus on children's work? Including empirical research and drawing on the author's extensive experience of working with children, Faith in Children offers a window into the process going on inside our children and enables those who work with them to understand what makes a particular child 'tick'. With insights into a range of teaching methods, learning styles and the unique spirituality of children, this book suggests how adults can truly learn from children as they learn from us. There are tips for ministers and educators on how this precious teaching and nurturing resource can be sustained and used to work with children in a more effective manner. Through this increasing knowledge and understanding, adults can come closer to understanding children understanding God.

These twin tales follow the raising of the King’s Standard at Nottingham Castle in 1642, through to 1646, when King Charles surrended to the Scottish army outside Newark. Set in Nottinghamshire, Uncivil War tells the story of five children caught in the conflict of the English Civil War. Tom, a stable boy; his sister Meg, a maidservant at Pierrepoint Hall; Nick, who never wanted to be a soldier; Jed, who did but later regrets it; and Alice, who is left to help run a refuge for victims. Seen through the eyes of innocent children, Uncivil War depicts the characters’ initial excitement at the thought of conflict but later hating the war and questioning the need for it at all. This book highlights the struggles children may face during wartime, as well as the lessons that still need to be learnt. While all the children are fictitious, the main adult characters are based on real people who lived in the county of Nottinghamshire at the time. This book gives a modern take to novels such as Marriott’sChildren of the New Forest.

With a slender design and appealing art, Cullinan and Galda present a thought provoking discussion on how children can read to respond, read to learn, and read to enjoy. This text provides evaluation criteria for selecting superior children's books, rather than listing thousands of titles and synopses. Booklists direct readers to quality literature, and extended discussions of selected titles demonstrate the selection criteria. Multicultural literature is discussed throughout the text, with a separate chapter on more specific multicultural issues. Numerous teaching ideas, many of which are contributed by classroom teachers, provide practical applications. This is a book for teachers, stressing the use of good books in a literature based curriculum.
