Following on from the success of Mal Leicester's previous books Stories for Classroom and Assembly and Stories for Inclusive Schools, this book shows how to make use of the learning power of story-time for young children, providing original, themed stories and associated learning activities to promote young children's cognitive and emotional development.

Stories in this highly practical resource stimulate the child's interest and acts as a springboard to related learning games designed to develop children's skills in the six foundation areas of learning:

  • personal, social and emotional development

  • communication, language and literacy

  • mathematical development

  • knowledge and understanding of the world

  • physical development

  • creative development.

Beautifully illustrated throughout, with extensive photocopiable material, this book recognizes the importance of play, games, social interaction, parental involvement, multicultural education and how to enjoy learning from an early age. All Early Years practitioners will find this book an essential addition to their bookshelves.

Industry Reviews

'This book is particularly strong on links to personal, social and emotional development. For each story, links are drawn with associated values, emotions and relationships. This is an original and useful resource, strong on theory, well laid out and highly practical.' - The Teacher
