A Double Stortyime Sunday with Katie Blackburn and Richard Smythe

We had a magical Storytime Sunday with the Author and Illustrator of the Dozy Bear series – Katie Blackburn and Richard Smythe. When you’re having trouble getting your kids to sleep, or introducing different foods and finding that you are up against it at every turn, help is always welcome. In search of reading materials to help her own little boy, Katie Blackburn decided to take on the challenge herself, and so the comforting, rhythmic, ever so gentle, Dozy Bear stories began.

The books work terrifically – we even had a few little ones nod off during the session!
