One of the great things about books is how versatile they are. Once your little one starts to recognise a particular book, you can use it as the basis for puppet shows, story bags, baking, craft, sensory play and much more to get their imaginations going and encourage their recall memory. We recently used the well loved ‘Dear Zoo’ book to inspire some sensory play which was great fun!

"1 in 11 children do not have a book in their home."(National Literacy Trust)
Unfortunately there are far too many statistics that follow this trend. I am so happy to be able to say that ZaZa's Storybox has now launched and we can start to help improve these statistics inspiring the little people in our lives to love books.
