Posted on | June 12, 2012 | 7 Comments

How wonderful it is to be welcoming back author/illustrator Clara Vulliamy with this month’s mini-books to inspire children (young and old) to create their own stories!

This month’s theme, to go with yesterday’s book review round up, is the seaside. Clara and I hope that, armed with top book tips, crafts and our mini books, you and your kids will be inspired to get storytelling and playing together – do let us know how you get on!

Click here to download Clara’s Seaside themed book full of storytelling prompts!

Once you’ve downloaded the book, you’ll need to fold it using the instructions in this video:

With your imagination sparking you’ll need a book to fill with your words and pictures. Click here for a blank mini book to fill with seaside stories!

Just in case you missed the first books in this delightful series by Clara, you can find the Fairy/elf story prompts here, and the blank book waiting for your magical stories here.

Clara and I wish you very happy story telling! Here’s hoping you find treasure at the beach :-)
