"Thank you so much for creating such a great event for us! There was such a lovely, vibrant atmosphere in the library - everyone had so much fun. One member of staff said that it was the best event we’ve ever had and one mum, who had brought along her young daughter and is a regular visitor to the library, said that they both loved it and that it was lovely to see so many children having a good time. Thanks again Pridie!" Bedminster Library, 2018
"We really enjoyed the session we attended. The kids were drawn into the 'campfire' tales that sparked their imaginations. Props gathered from nature engaged all five senses. Some lovely ideas to go away and try at home too." Alex (Violet's mum), 2018
"The Wiggles and Squiggles story session we went to was really captivating and fun. Pridie used sound, smell and texture to enhance the story which was told dynamically and interactively. My two year old loved smelling the woods and making her own squirrel puppet best of all." Holly (Ivy's mum), 2017
Our interactive story-telling sessions focus on sharing some of the wildest and wackiest stories currently out there for little ones! In our secret den and around our little (fake) fire, every tall tale is accompanied by sounds and sensations that bring each book's characters and their adventures to life! There's plenty of sniffing and scratching, dancing and laughing to enjoy and often we spend a bit of time creating crafty, arty pieces that link with the stories we read and are built of materials fresh from the outdoors. Other activities range from experimenting with animal noises that can be linked to phonic sounds in our own language, to weaving our very own story with a little bit of help from our story stone lucky dip!
