16 days to go!

Only 16 days till Virtual Story Club starts and I can't wait. I am very busy recording and editing videos ready for our first session. It is going to be a good one!

Who enjoyed the video of 'WANTED: Ralphy Rabbit, Book Thief'? Did anyone have a go at drawing him using the video? If so, you could ask an adult to send a picture to or put it in the Story Club Album on Facebook.  Don't forget to put Virtual Story Club in the subject line if you are sending it as an email.


Have a look at this video below, which is the story 'Do Not Disturb the Dragons' by Michelle Robinson. It also shows how to draw a dragon by illustrator Sharon Davey.


Enjoy and I hope you are counting down the days too!
