Loft treasure no.8 – ABC, 123, and some vintage rhymes

I haven’t posted about my loft treasures for ages and what better time to reintroduce them than for my one hundredth post?!  When I first started this blog nearly a year ago I didn’t think I’d get past one post, let alone up to a hundred, and it took me quite a few months to […]

Inspiration for Story Seekers – Bookhappy

Following on from the fab  Zoe from ‘Playing by the book’, I’m really excited to be able to share my interview with Cate and Hannah from ‘Bookhappy‘.

This past Sunday I held another storytelling session at out local Oxfam Books and Music shop, this time for two to four year olds.  The amazing books above are the ones we shared and all of them were very well received by the children who came along. We started off by looking through a range […]
