A Year of Stories And Things To Do by Shirley Hughes


A classic treasury of Shirley Hughes stories together with crafts, games, and activities for every month!

This glorious gift treasury from Shirley Hughes takes you right through the year with not only whole books, stories and poems, but also lots of exciting ideas of activities for young children to do. Each month is introduced by Shirley, with its very own flower for children to spot. What's more, every month explores great things to do: crafts to make, games to play, ideas to try.

This book makes busy work for small hands! It is jam-packed with stories to share together or read independently… and then there are crafts and games for children to take outside, play on car journeys, in parks, at the beach or inside. Whatever the weather and whether you’re on your own or with a group of friends and family there is something for everyone to discover!

A YEAR OF STORIES AND THINGS TO DO includes: the Greenaway Medal award-winner Ella's Big Chance, Alfie's Feet, Alfie Wins a Prize, Don't Want to Go!, Bobbo Goes to School, Jonadab and Rita and many more...
