Here is a review from the session:

“The story telling session was extremely interesting and all children were hooked from the start with the practical introduction and build up  to the book. The Health and Well being  follow on session based on everyone is special was a superb follow on from the book and was age appropriate. It allowed the children to discuss differences in a non threatening informal manner! The children thoroughly enjoyed completing the fold up book too! You were very patient with the children questions and made it relevant to their ideas and suggestions. Diolch yn fawr Mark.”

Very good book!

It was very good. What I liked about it is when Midge was on the tightrope.
