Our Little Reads story times are usually once a month in libraries across Greater Manchester. As we can't do that at the moment we will be posting a new Little Reads story time every Wednesday at 10.30am here.

If you join the Facebook group, Miriam will send out a reminder beforehand. Please have your favourite cuddly toy ready as we can use them for some of our moves & songs. It is a space for you and your little ones to have fun sharing a story, singing, moving and playing. Language development can be so much fun! Remember to join in yourself as your child/ren love to copy you 😀
Big smiles & rainbows for everyone! Feel free to share!

Little Reads is a fun, interactive workshop using drama, dance, songs, play and craft to explore children’s picture books. Most suitable for children aged 2 to 6 but all family members are welcome.

We will be at Longsight, Levenshulme, Moss Side, Central, Stretford, Old Trafford, Salford & Stockport libraries when they are open again.

If you have any questions about any of the above or you want to sign up for the Little Reads mailing list, you can get in touch with our Children & Young People's Programme Producer: miriam@manchesterliteraturefestival.co.uk

This project has been made possible though the generous supported of the GMCA Culture Fund and Manchester City Council Neighbourhood Investment Funds.
