    My favourite children’s story is Red Riding Hood. This is because it has so many layer and so may versions, that it can appeal to everyone no matter what age. I particularly like the Chinese version, where Red Riding Hood is called Goldflower and she defeats not a wolf but a bear!

    My favourite story was called ‘Cheeky’ it was about a little blue bird and how it survived several scary incidents and the snowy winter. My dad used to read to us and bedtimes and that was a special time. 🙂

    My favourite story is fantastic Mr fox. It was the first story I read by myself as a child and I read it hundreds of times. I loved the descriptions of the three farmers.

    My favorite story for telling is Harry the Dirty Dog by Gene Zion. I enjoy telling stories that keep both the children and adults listening. The twist at the end is wonderful!
