Telling Tales – Read it! Make it! Bake it!
I wanted to share this blog with you… if it was written by an adult then I would have been impressed but it is actually by a child… yes! a young girl who attended one of our summer workshops….She was very enthusiastic about the site and I can see why … it’s inspiring and wonderful.
On the site there a book reviews, ideas for making crafts and baking inspired by the books the blogger has read and competitions. Have a look and get creative! You can even share some of your stories on the blog and be in with a chance of winning a prize.
An extract from her ABOUT ME PAGE
As an avid reader, I started this blog to share my love of reading and show others how much fun it can be.
In this blog, I read children’s books and review them. The most interesting part is making a craft or baking a delicious treat based on the theme within the book. After reading the ‘Secret Cooking Club’ by Lauren Remington I created some delicious cornflake crispies and after reading ‘Quidditch through the ages’ by J.K. Rowling, I created a Quidditch themed treasure box.

The Wolves of Willoughby Chase by Joan Aiken
Book review by Rosa aged 7
The Wolves of Willoughby Chase is a book about a girl called Bonnie, her cousin Sylvia and Bonnie’s friend Simon. They go on an adventure to escape the clasp of the supposedly “evil” governess, Miss Slighcarp (also Bonnie’s fourth cousin once removed), with the help of Pattern the maid and James the footman.
This book made me feel sad at times but when I felt sad, as soon as I read the next part, I almost always felt happy again! I enjoyed this book because it was very exciting!
I would recommend this book to generally ages 8/9+. I would also recommend this book to you if you enjoy the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling.
