Short Stories Tall Tales: The Night Before Christmas

Interactive storytelling for babies, toddlers and their parents or carers.

Hannah Summers is an actress, singer and mum and combines each talent to bring interactive, imaginative play for parents/carers and their toddlers aged 0-4. Hannah tells a different story each month, through illustrated film slides, songs, props and creative fun.

Inspired and adapted from the nineteenth century tale by Clement Clarke Moore.

A family stay at Granny’s chocolate-box cottage for Christmas. The children and your little ones soon discover everything that is exciting about this time of year with festive interaction through an imaginative re-telling and they’ll play and sneak a peak at the jolly chap who might visit with presents, if they’re all good boys and girls.

A wonderfully high-spirited spin on an old favourite that will inspire your little ones. Adapted for storytelling written and told by Hannah Summers, illustrations by Miranda Summers
