Storytelling for babies, toddlers and parents/carers

Actress and mum Hannah Summers brings classic and modern stories to life through live performance and interactive, creative play. Adventure into stories, explore through the senses and let your little ones’ imaginations run free.

July’s show will be The Hare and the Tortoise

An Aesop’s fable adapted for Storytelling
Written and told by Hannah Summers
Illustrations by Miranda Summers

In one of the most famous of Aesop’s fables, a very cheeky and boastful Hare gloats that he’s the fastest creature in the whole wood. A tortoise, sick of bickering on this topic, volunteers to race him and Hare learns an important lesson.

Hannah’s inventive and energetic retelling follows the Hare and the Tortoise through, over and round the forest obstacles and working together, your little ones learn that:

It isn’t all about who wins the chase, slow and steady wins the race. 

Tortoise comes first, but so do we, as teamwork is worth more than first place to me.
