Julie Pryke is a mum of three, and grandmother of three + ‘Bump’, who is due shortly (at time of writing). She has been a play group and play scheme leader, worked with youth and community groups; she was also a college lecturer. She is a ‘born storyteller’ and a member of Bradford Writers Circle.
Close friend, Joanne Ellis Tordoff is also a mum of three, a youth worker, primary school teacher and artist.
They both love reading and encouraging young readers to ‘get started’ and hope this new venture will inspire their adults to do the same!
This delightful story by the real author (Julie Pryke) takes you through the idea of the Animal Olympics as they may have developed, thanks to a rainy day, a pet dog and a bored child with an artistic bent.
'Tell Tales' is an innovative new book on how to tell original stories to children. It is full of ideas and suggestions for parents, grandparents, teachers, play-workers and other storytellers to help them begin to make up their own stories, or to help them develop existing skills further. It includes, as examples, a range of stories and games for children up to nine years of age.
