"This may be pitched as a “little guide”, but goodness me it’s packed with wisdom and practical advice that any professional working in our school system will find absolute gold dust when it comes to the sometimes-tricky challenge of parental engagement. Building not only the authors’ many years of personal experience, the guide draws on their own research and that of many other leaders in this field to create a superbly grounded yet optimistic set of ideas, tips and reflection points. I love how the authors challenge so many orthodoxies, such as flipping the concept of the “hard-to-reach family” into the “hard-to-reach school”. Throughout the book is an implicit thread that will be familiar to those versed in the principles and power of effective coaching, exploring important topics such as building relationships, listening and getting the right tone and balance in all communication. This is a refreshing, accessible and eminently practical guide in an often-neglected area that will be invaluable for teachers and leaders at all levels within schools. Highly recommend!" - Andy Buck, best-selling author, speaker, trainer and coach.
