Everyone loves a good story whether it is a bedtime, fairy tale, or scary story!
This is why the month May is dedicated to celebrating books and reading in National Share-A-Story Month.
Organised by the national charity Federation of Children’s Book Group, the month is designed to promote the power of story. It has a long history, starting out as a National Tell-A-Story Week in 1974 and being extended to the whole month in 1988.
Over the years events and activities have took place up and down the country including a national competition with fabulous prizes.
And 2011 is no exception with the special theme of “A Box of Delights” in which people create and share stories they find within boxes.
Get involved with the kids this May and every night gather around on the sofa, or sit in the sunny garden and read stories to each other; either from a book or made up!
We don’t know about you but nothing sounds better to us here at Ulster Weavers HQ than pouring a nice hot cup of tea into a pot, using some summery themed Tea Cosies to keep it warm, and sitting back and reading narratives and tales to the family.
We have some lovely flowery Cosies to choose from that will blend it perfectly with the garden when sat outside having family time.
