Story Time

Following the events in the news last week you may well have had children ask questions about different ethnicities or racism.  Here are some book suggestions for different age groups to help you explore these themes.

Are you a J.K. Rowling fan? Then take a look at a new fairy tale she has written: The Ickabog.  She is adding a new chapter each day.  

Not only can you read the story, but she is also asking for you, yes YOU, to draw the illustrations for it's publication in November.  Find out more here:

Happy Reading!
