To celebrate half term, we’re choosing a different theme from A Little, Aloud for Children each day this week and we’re kicking things off with Charming Creatures!
In this chapter of A Little, Aloud for Children, Rudyard Kipling tells the story of How the Rhinoceros Got His Skin, a tale of itchy cake crumbs, whilst Patrick Barrington discovers that it’s not easy to keep a hippopotamus in a shed in his poem I Had a Hippopotamus.
If you’ve got a copy of the book, or another favourite story or poem about an animal, why not give it a read? Or, better yet, find a charming creature to read it aloud with! We’ve already found a few perusing pets around The Reader Organisation’s offices…
Who knew animals loved reading so much? Do you know a charming creature who enjoys a good story or poem? We’d love to see them! Send us your photos through Twitter, @thereaderorg, on our Facebook page, or by emailing them to Chantel: firstname.lastname@example.org.
