Pearl Power - Mel Simone Elliott

Saturday 29th November - 12pm

Mel Elliott's first ever children's book is a delightful story of Pearl, a clever little girl who believes very strongly in gender equality. Aimed at 4-8 year olds, Pearl Power is written in rhyme, creating a nice rhythm for the reader and making it easier for the child to join in.

Free event, all welcome!




No Thursday storytime at the moment - but it will return ...
