Coop Chaos, Morning Mystery was introduced to local children on Saturday, September 18th where I enjoyed meeting lots of families who popped along to the Edwinstowe Book Festival.
The sun was shining on this wonderful Autumn Day adding to the atmosphere in the garden of Edwinstowe house.
The pop-up storytelling program was a great success as Jim Munro captivated the children with his tales of The magic Paintbrush and Many Moons.
A storyteller not a story reader is how he describes himself and he certainly achieved this as he took the children on a journey to China with his tale of The magic paintbrush.
Gareth Baker children’s author and patron of reading sat the children around the magic storytelling campfire and read The Little Gingerbread Man with such gusto and energy encouraging the children to interact with the story.
Teacher Jade Millington from Mansfield’s Holly Primary School provided an impromptu storytelling session with her debut picture book Coronasaurus Rex. She created this story to help children understand the coronavirus. I wish Jade massive success with this book and subsequent publications.
I wish to thank the Newark Festival Team for inviting me to join in with this fun-filled day.
