Sunday Stories: story + craft

This week’s story…

Mika: the Bear Who Didn’t Want to Sleep

by Erik Friek

Mika the little bear loves to run and play all about the forest, but she soon learns that winter is on its way, and she is meant to spend these long, cold months hibernating with her mother and father. When the Old Owl tells Mika about the Northern Lights that appear every winter, she can’t stand the thought of missing something so beautiful, and so she sets out on a secret, snowy adventure to find them!

Sunday Stories is aimed at children between 3-7 years old (but all welcome). Each session will last about 45 minutes and prominently features a hand-picked book from our much-loved Children’s Room, followed by some crafts or games based on the book we’ve just read.

Sunday Stories is completely FREE and no booking is required, though we advise turning up a bit early in case it’s busy! We’ll start sharp at 11.30am, and while your little ones are entertained by stories, grown-ups can enjoy a proper browse in the shop.

10% off on the weekly Storytime book all Sunday!

A perfect bookish fix before/after heading to the weekly Stockbridge Market.
