Special Animal Tales At Colchester Zoo For National Story Telling Week
Tales in store for the weekend include 'King of the World,' an interactive tale for children to enjoy, with costumes to dress up in and exciting animal roles to act out! 'You're too small,' a unique tale about Zamba our youngest member of the white rhino family and the mischief he gets up to on his quest to find somebody to play with! Other tales also include 'The lonely giraffe,' left out of the action due to his long neck, the giraffe and animals soon have to learn to work together when danger approaches and the river bursts its banks, and 'The selfish crocodile' who soon needs to learn the error of his ways when struck with a terrible toothache and needs to ask for help, plus many more!
These stories will take place during the day inside the Discovery Centre over the weekend, with plenty of chances for families to catch some of these exciting tales. After, they will be able to head out into the park and spot some of the main characters in their enclosures throughout the zoo.
Special story telling sessions are also on offer throughout story telling week from the 29th January until the 6th February for School groups to book and enjoy.
National Storytelling Week began in the year 2000, with the aim to increase public awareness of the art, practice and value of oral storytelling. It is held during the first week of February every year.
I saw this and thought our readers might be interested, we would love to go but I don't think we will be able to, will try my best though as my son would love it!!
