About this Event
Free Storytelling by Kim Ward.
Bring the children along for visual storytelling, crafts, activities and conversation. Join in with them and help them talk about their issues.
Each session will cover a different subject, but don’t worry it’s not like being back at school.
Pickles is Britain’s only guide cat, that makes him pretty special. It also makes him different.
In the Pickles stories he talks about a lot of things that are very important in life, they are also the hardest issues for children to talk about.
Pickles is different from his sisters in lots of ways.
Being or feeling different can be very hard.
We are all different in some way. The way we look, the way we dress the way we feel.
Pickles has to move to a different family that he has never met, a home that is different, smells different and he is scared by this.
Each of pickles stories talk about important changes in life that affect everyone but children feel this the most and yet we forget this. Pickles stories talk about lots of issues in a child’s language.
Being different, looking different, having to move to a new family, eating problems, being nervous or shy, making new friends, discovering the world around you, first day at school, first play time, different seasons, going to the doctors, being in hospital and lots, lots more.
Pickles explains it all in a very simple way. Using pictures and simple language. He will ask questions and help you understand.
So bring the children along for visual storytelling, crafts, activities and conversation. Join in with them and help them talk about their issues.
It will be fun and interactive in a lovely relaxed atmosphere.
Come along and give it a try, you may even join in yourself.
Pickles and his friends books are available to buy at a discounted price.
