Handa's surprise author visits Reception

What a treat the children in Reception had today with a visit from the author of Handa’s surprise stories Eileen Browne. They delved deep into their imaginations acting out the animals in the story through actions, a lot of fun was had pretending to be a Zebra! They discussed where the story was set with Neveah commenting“it’s in Africa” and looking for the country on a map. They were even treated to an exclusive reading of Eileen’s new story ‘Handa’s noisy night’. It was a very enjoyable afternoon and it was amazing to see the thought process which is involved in creating a story and seeing how talented Eileen is especially with her illustration of a mouse.
