    “The growing number of intergenerational projects bringing some of our oldest and youngest people together are always asking for ideas on what to do. Look no further! Lorraine George’s new book has fifty themed activities – all very clearly set out for those leading activities, from preparation and resources needed to learning opportunities and future developments, and of course things to be aware of. I particularly like the proactive ideas that draw on older people’s knowledge and experience as well as Lorraine’s own expertise as an early years professional. The book also sets the context for intergenerational learning, the benefits for all generations and where to go for further advice and information.”
