This Christmas, Kingston upon Thames launches the Kingston Children’s Literary Festival and invites children and parents alike to listen to some of their favourite festive and non-festive tales from a line up some of the UK’s best-loved children’s authors in the lead-up to Christmas.
Join Doodles & Scribbles – Jenna & Lucy for a 30 minute interactive reading from their book, Parrots Don’t Live in the City!
Parrots Don't Live in the City! is a beautifully crafted hide-and-seek picture book, designed to encourage children to pause and notice nature all around them. It's perfect for young readers aged two to six years -written in rhyming couplets, it encourages aural and oral development through rhyme and repetition, whilst the charming narrative promotes close observation and inquisitiveness. Our ‘Minibeast Nature Trail’ and ‘Parroty Fun’ page encourage families not only to read together, but to learn and play together too!
Recommended for ages 2-6, this event is completely free of charge. The reading will be held at Ultimate café in Ultimate Outdoors Kingston. Please note children may be seated on the floor, some soft cushions will be provided.
Children must be accompanied at all times.
