Next week is National Storytelling Week.
Telling stories and reading stories to children is something that I am passionate about. As a family, I loved hearing a range of stories from my parents, grandparents and extended family. I would listen in awe!
As a dyslexic person, contrary to popular belief, I love reading (the areas of dyslexia that are an issue for me are spelling, grammar, writing and the pronunciation of certain words – thank goodness for technology!). This has always been the same since I was a young child. I always found my oasis in my local library, selecting and reading a range of fiction and non-fiction books.
I am delighted that there is a special week dedicated to storytelling and the range of exciting activities that can be done to celebrate the joy of storytelling.
Please view the Society for Storytelling’s website, for more information and how to get your setting involved.
I am also delighted to announce that my children’s books Jo Jo and GranGran will be on the BBC’s CBeebies channel in the near future.
To celebrate National Storytelling week and March’s World Book Day, I am doing author readings in a range of Early Years settings, schools, and other organisations. If you would like to book a session, please feel free to email me.
