I don't know about you, but this year's reality - attempting to work with wild offspring howling, prowling and scrabbling about a forest of disorder (and frequent discontent) - has felt, on occasion, stranger than a tale told by the Brothers Grimm! 

 

The solution? Some story-orientated escapism! Let's share stories to escape the strain of the day and provide a TOTAL DISTRACTION from all things virus-like!

 

I invite you to enjoy these twenty four simple storytelling sessions below. It's very simple - story is a springboard for sharpening English skills! My aim to is provide an escape, some entertainment, a little bit of creative inspiration for further learning and some accidental education for everyone at home during these unusual times!
