Each book has suggestions for ways of sharing the story – for example reading aloud, talking about the book, retelling the story, watching a video.
Activities are listed under each book under the heading ‘Things to make and do’. These activities can help your child become more involved in the story.
You don’t have to do all the activities – they are there to dip in to and help you and your children enjoy the book.
