The Life of Stephen Lawrence Reviews

An honest, deeply moving celebration of Stephen Lawrence's young life in simple accessible prose. It represents an outstanding achievement by Tamarind. Every primary school should have several copies * Scholastic Primary Update - Best *
Verna Wilkins rises to the challenge * Books for Keeps *
A landmark in children's non-fiction publishing and treats a tragedy with sensitivity and quiet dignity . . . Clearly written, with a definite audience and purpose, here is non fiction at its best. This book should be required reading for every primary school child -- Anne Faundez * Junior Education *
