It was all hands on deck as Ladybird hit the North East for the first Ladybird Live tour of 2013.
At every Ladybird Live event, the library was packed with preschoolers and their parents, snuggled down on gorgeous giant Ladybird beanbags*, enjoying fantastic storytelling, imagination and fun!
James, our wonderful professional storyteller, really brought the stories to life; he was dressed as Captain Cutlass – Ladybird's very own pirate from the Skullabones Island books – and there were cries of 'Ah Ha Me Hearties' filling the room as the little ones went on a journey with him, sailing the high seas, singing songs, searching for buried treasure through telescopes and joining in swashbuckling activities!!
*sorry, the bean bags are not for sale, but we do have one up for grabs in our prize draw below.
As well as storytelling, we kept the little ones busy with face-painting and wonderful arts and crafts, while Ladybird experts were on hand to give parents and carers advice and tips on reading with their children.
Our next tour takes place during the week of 10-15 of June and will be at various libraries in the North West. If you would like to attend, click here to find your nearest event and to find out more details.
