We love books!
Here at Kiddiewinkles we LOVE a good story, so we’re big fans of World Storytelling Day! Celebrated every year on March 20th, this special day inspires people across the globe to put down the iPad, turn off the telly and read a good story aloud. There’s nothing better than snuggling up with our little ones, especially in one of our lovely Playhouses or Wigwams, and diving into a book together.
If you’re on the lookout for a new tale to tell, check out these favourites from Team Kiddiewinkles. Then, share your own recommendations on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter using #MyKiddiewinkles so we can share with our followers!
