Disney's Winnie The Pooh Academy has brought together a panel of storytelling experts which includes broadcaster and mum of two, Zoe Ball, child psychologist Emma Kenny, and Disney’s Justine Finch, in order to create the Winnie the Pooh Storytelling Academy. The Academy is an online resource offering a wide range of tips, tricks and guidance designed to show modern parents and grandparents how both traditional and modern multimedia storytelling techniques can help them achieve a rich, shared family story time experience.

I recently posted their reading tips for Grandparents here and Disney kindly have offered a Winnie The Pooh book and DVD to Given To Distracting Others as a prize.

I want to know yours or your childs  favourite book, or a book that was read to you as a child?

  3. I remember as a child loving Enid Blyton's 'The Famous Five'!!!! I remember reading till really late under my blankets with a torch lol! But they were the type of books I couldn't put down!

    I have been reading a selection of Roald Dahl books with my three older children - at the mo we are on James and the Giant Peach and have just finished George's Marvellous medicine! They are oving them and so am I as I read them too when I was younger!

    My youngest daughter, however prefer stories aimed at a younger audience and we are currently reading Angelina Ballerina books. She goes to ballet with her older sister so has become obsessed with this little mouse!

  43. My 2 yr old son's favourite book is "How Elephant Got His Trunk" - he loves making the animal noises with me, doing the actions and his favourite part of all is when the animals are pulling and pulling and pulling, while elephants nose gets longer and longer and longer. He has gotten us to read it do often now, that he knows which bit is coming up and if we sneakily try to skip a bit!!
