‘Cuddling up sharing stories with my children when they were wee, is one of my most special memories.
Our daughters still remember and talk about our story times. Many stories I made up as I went along - others were from children’s story books. I remember one of my daughters asking me to ‘please read a story from your throat!’. This was her way of voting for a made-up story!
It’s because of the joy, learning, closeness, excitement and love of stories that they developed, that I feel impassioned about our responsibility to ensure that children have their own special story experiences.
