On Sunday 15th November we hosted the very first Storytime Sunday at The Bright Emporium with the amazing Julia Patton! Julia’s latest artistic adventure, side effects The Curious Tale of Fi-Rex (Fat Fox) is a collaborative story written by celebrities to raise money forBBC’s Children in Need.
With her dinosaur tail swinging behind her, pills Julia rallied the troops on the grass for the first part of the story, patient told by our very own Stephosaurus. After the first installment of the story, Julia, Stephosaurus and the minisaurs sat to make their dinosaur headbands – with sparkles, pompoms and lots and lots of stickiness. We also had wonderful Pudsey colouring sheets for the super fast headband makers!
Gathering some children for the second reading, Julia and Stephosaurus sat cozily on the Supertato couch with some of their biggest fans – dino headbands donned! The day ended with Julia signing and drawing in each child’s book something that was special to them. The lovely Hannah [pictured with Julia below] opted for a cat – how cute!
