An interactive storytelling experience for four to seven-year-olds – in schools, libraries and other community learning spaces. 

Once upon a time there was a band of swashbuckling pirates, a dark forest of tall trees and a captured princess… Suddenly the characters break free from their pages. What happens next?

Books are one of our favourite things. Escaping into another world – into the extraordinary – thrills us every time we pick one up. So when we were first asked to put together a show that would quite literally bring a school library to life, we jumped at the chance. 

HOW THE BOOK PROJECT WORKS

In an afternoon or even whole day, we bring to life the pages and characters of well-known stories – and invite the kids, and teachers, to play along. We tailor our sessions to each school and number of children, often performing simultaneously across three classrooms, which really makes things interesting.  

HOW IT HELPS WITH READING AND WRITING

Book Project introduces writing elements in a fun, interactive format

·       It inspires children to write, create and get more into storytelling

·       It’s an easy, accessible way to bring more creativity into your classroom

 

WHAT SCHOOLS SAY ABOUT IT

Everyone is still talking about it. The children haven’t stopped telling everyone they meet and they haven’t stopped writing, either. A complete triumph, so thank you!
