Happy New year to you all !
Whether you are new to the feed or seasoned veterans I'll just give a brief outline to the podcast and how it can be used.
Each podcast contains a story, or chapters of a longer story, read my me. If you just want to use the podcast as a sort of story time, bedtime story or as something family friendly in the background then that's great but there is also an extra educational side to the podcast. In the show notes there are questions or activities based on the story. You may find it beneficial to have the questions to hand during the reading so you can go through them as the podcast progresses. If you also have access to the text - that's great - but not integral. Of course, if it inspires you or you young ones to go and find explore the wider world of books then I see it that my work here is done!
