I led two Rhyme Time Rambles at Seven Stories, the wonderful Centre for Children’s Books in Newcastle, today. We rhyme-time rambled …
We rambled through the Wild Wood and through 100 Acre Wood. We sang songs and chanted poems about Toad and Ratty and Mole, and about Tigger and Owl and Piglet and Pooh. And we slurched like snails, and we buzzed like bees, and we fluttered like butterflies.
This event was one of a series of events at Seven Stories this week entitled ‘A Walk in the Wood’.
If you haven’t been to Seven Stories, do go! It’s a magical place. The exhibition about The Wind in the Willows and Pooh comes to an end soon. But that will be followed by a Judith Kerr exhibition. (‘When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit’ was one of my favourite books as a child, so I’m looking forward to that exhibition.)
Thank you to everyone who joined in our Rhyme Time Rambles, and to all the staff at Seven Stories, for their welcome.
