CHANGING THE TALE is a reading hub for parents, children and teachers, developing imaginations and building on the magic of stories. It’s somewhere to get inspiration, advice and ideas from a mum and teacher. And it’s a supportive network of people that want to do their best for their child; a book club for the whole family.
I love to work with mums, dads and carers who want the very best for their children and can see the wider benefits of reading but aren't confident with how to help their children to love learning.
I know what that mum-guilt feels like, the feeling that you’re ‘not doing enough’ yet trying to juggle everything! To help release that guilt, I have shared lots of downloadable resources and ideas for parents and carers like you. I want you to feel confident in encouraging your child to treasure stories, with simple, time- and cost-effective ideas.
As an experienced primary school teacher, literacy has long been my specialism and passion. Over the years I’ve worked with children from early years to key stage 3, with a huge range of abilities and needs, to develop their literacy skills. Since having my own two children I strive to put into practice what I preach! We love nothing more than sharing stories together and stomping through the forest or along the beach, encouraging them to explore and learn as we go.
If you like tried and tested activities, professional, educational advice and a friendly literacy consultant, then you’re in the right place. So let's work together to make books the heart of your home.
