Celebrate the Power of Storytelling With National Share-a-Story Month
The Federation of Children’s Book Groups is an organisation that was started in the 1960s. It was created in response to parents desires to learn more about children’s books and how to encourage their own children to read more. Children’s Book Groups were created all over the UK, and the Federation served to link them all together. The Federation has been responsible for a number of different initiatives including National Share-a-Story Month.
What is National Share-a-Story Month?
It is a celebration that takes place every year throughout the month of May. It has proved to be an excellent way to celebrate storytelling and how powerful it can be. Children and stories are brought together with a variety of different events that take place across the UK. A different theme is used for each year and for 2019 was Travelling Tales – stories that involve any sort of travel, from the usual trains and boats and planes, to journeys through time and space.
