Children truly are my greatest teachers! Why? Read on...
It's been quite a long time since my last visit to Fulham Library and I couldn't wait to return once again with my new picture book, Billy Joins the Circus! The children's library was as I remembered it, full of wonderful books and beautiful artwork displayed everywhere you turn. I took some photos of the art displays and I will post them on Instagram but this blog post is about my Storytime with the children.
I was very happy to see that the library had displayed my poster on their noticeboards both outside and inside the library. They had even printed flyers to give to families which I appreciated. One of the reasons why I volunteer at libraries is to help keep libraries alive and buzzing. To bring families to the libraries and to support them so it's nice when they also make an effort to promote events and help to make them great too.
Families had already turned up when I arrived. I quickly set up so I would have time to chat with the parents and the children who were ready for my Storytime. I am always observing the children's reactions to my Storytime and my products. This is how I learn what works and what doesn't. Children truly are my greatest teachers!
Most of the children at my workshops like to take their drawings home but sometimes I am lucky and I get to keep them. I add their drawings to my art wall which you can see in my YouTube videos and I will be adding these new drawings too. Look out for them in my next video!
