The Bright Emporium (STS & Book Launches)

Spiders Playing Sport: Storytime with Sebastien Braun


We had such a great time at Storytime on Sunday, the brilliant illustrator, Sebastien Braun came in to the Emporium to do a magical storytelling of Spinderella. As you can see from the photos- a lot of fun was had by all.

We were all captivated by Seb’s reading of the story, the children joined in with their numbers, practicing their counting out loud, along with Spinderella the spider. The story was great at conveying the importance of counting and teamwork.

We then got creative, making our very own spider football team, just like there was in the book. Each participant made their very own spider, inclusive (in most cases) of all 8 legs. We set up some goal posts and used the spiders we made to test out our football skills, working hard to score, it’s fair to say the word ‘GOAL!’ was heard a lot in the Emporium on Sunday.


Get ready for the next Storytime Sunday by reading our ‘Go behind the book with Migy and Karl Here.
