National Share a Story Month

Test

We are halfway through the month of May which is National Share a Story Month, co-ordinated by The Federation of Children’s Book groups.  Our theme this year is Picture A Story and our aims for the month are –

– to celebrate the power of illustrations, particularly in picture books, for all ages and to encourage sharing of picture books

– to celebrate, appreciate and enjoy pictures in Museums and art galleries and to encourage creative writing using these pictures as starting points

- to encourage youngsters of all ages to draw, illustrate, sketch and tell a story, however simple, through their own pictures and the comic format

Have a look at our website http://www.fcbg.org.uk/national-share-a-story-month/to see how the month is being celebrated.  There are also activity ideas and worksheets available to download.

Every day on Twitter (@FCBGnews) an illustrator is being celebrated and we are highlighting a favourite picture book daily too on the FCBG Facebook page.

Find out more about the FCBG at our website (http://www.fcbg.org.uk ) and see if there is a book group near you to join!

Enjoy NSSM!
