I find rattler to be a more practical magazine that ALL of my educators can find something to read in.
Rattler is a wonderful early childhood journal and I am always keen to read through it when it arrives.
I have been in the sector for 40 years and have always enjoyed Rattler. I found it extremely helpful when researching for study.
Rattler is a very well written professional resource that is well set out and easy to navigate.
