We're Superhero Bugs!

Picking up "rubbish" and buzzing about at MCM Comic Con!

Super fun Storytime at MCM London Comic Con yesterday! It was lovely to be back in The Treehouse singing and dancing along to my stories with the children and seeing my MCM friends again. I began with a read-aloud of my picture book, Billy Joins the Circus, followed by what I now call, 'Round of Questions' where I encourage children to say their answers to my questions into the microphone. They enjoy doing this, especially when I encourage them to sing some of the lines in the songs! 😃

For the first time at MCM, I performed Litter Bugs! I brought my little yellow bin and "rubbish". During the story, when the bugs are singing and putting their rubbish in the bin, I throw my rubbish on the floor and invite the children to pick it up and put it in the bin. This is surprisingly exciting for children and I love watching them enthusiastically do this task. It's a great story for highlighting an important message in a fun way.

Next up was Superhero Bugs! Always a hit at Comic Con as the topic of this story fits this event perfectly. I played it twice as more children had arrived and I didn't want them to miss out on hearing the story, especially as I wrote it for MCM Comic Con! Check out the Short below to see a snippet of this story live. My workshop ended with colouring in and the children enjoyed my Superhero Bugs printable.

BIG thank you to Charlotte and the team, and to the families who attended my Storytime. Well done to all the wonderful children for your excellent singing and dance skills and for making my morning Storytime so special.
