The inclusion of puppets and toys alongside books encourages imaginative play and boosts confidence in speaking and listening. This Contemporary Tales Collection 3-6yrs contains carefully matched books and soft toys to deepen involvement in the stories children hear. Children can join in with noises, rhymes and phrases, experiment with new vocabulary and also develop understanding of story structure.
Throughout the year there are many ways to enhance your provision for storytelling with themed books and puppets. Delight your children with these well-known characters so they can enjoy stories packed with warmth, intrigue and humour.
Our Contemporary Tales Collection 3-6yrs includes the following
- The Wolf’s Story and wolf hand puppet. This paperback book by Toby Forward will see children second-guessing this funny, fractured fairy tale that replays the story of Little Red Riding Hood from the poor maligned wolf’s point of view.
- Stick Man book and soft toy set. This paperback book by former Children’s Laureate, Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler is a children’s story about an anthropomorphic wooden stick. He becomes separated from his family home and goes on an Odyssey-like adventure to return there.
- The Gruffalo paperback book and soft toy set. A children’s book by writer and playwright Julia Donaldson, illustrated by Axel Scheffler, that tells the story of a mouse, the protagonist of the book, taking a walk in the woods.
- We’re Going on a Bear Hunt book and bear soft toy. A paperback book written by Michael Rosen and illustrated by Helen Oxenbury. Follow and join in the family’s excitement as they wade through the grass, splash through the river and squelch through the mud in search of a bear. What a surprise awaits them in the cave on the other side of the dark forest!
