To mark National Story Telling Week, Lynne Featherstone MP on Friday hosted a special storytelling session at the Big Green Bookshop for kids from Alexandra Primary School.
The Liberal Democrat MP, who is supporting the Society for Storytelling in a drive to get more people into reading, interpreted some traditional stories with modern twists to a year three class from the Wood Green primary school.
Lynne Featherstone commented:
“With so many computer games and TV shows on offer today, it’s sometimes easy for parents to forget just what a joy it is to sit down and read a really good book to your kids.
“But most of the kids here today seem to have a real hunger for reading, with long lists of favourite books.
“I’ve certainly had a fantastic time here today, and I hope these kids have has just as much fun.”
