Twenty lucky children have been spending the first week of their summer holidays at The Peculiar Pop-Up Story Shop!
The Reader Organisation have transformed a disused shop in Seacombe into a Creativity Camp and Imagination Station with funding from Wirral Borough Council’s Empty Shops Fund and A Little, Aloud for Children has been at the heart of all the activities. So far, we’ve had a special reading of the book from its editor, Angela Macmillan, as well as the chance to hold owls, snakes, tarantulas, and other curious creatures. Fantastic feasts, drama-rama, and creative crafts are all on the bill, and the Mayor of Wirral even poppped by and let everyone try on his mayoral chain! To round it all off, every day has finished with some stories and poems from A Little, Aloud for Children.
Keep checking the blog to read more about what we got up to, but in the meantime, here’s a little taster of the fun and games so far:
