Thanks to ABC Books here is your chance to win the new 'Five Minutes More: The Princess Who Could Not Choose' Book, based on the ABC TV series about five fury friends who enjoy storytelling.A story can take just 'Five Minues More'. Even the busiest parent on the businest day can give a child give minutes.
In the next two gorgeous books, based on ABC TV series, you'll discover the wonderful world of five furry friends who live on a magical patchwork quilt - an endless landscape of unexpected locations waiting to be explored. More than anything, these five friends love to tell each other stories. One is always the storyteller, who sets the scene, one is the dedicated listener (and chief interrupter) and the other three create the characters and act out the stories with imagination and humour. This engaging series draws young readers in for 'Five Minutes More'.
The 'Five Minutes More' series was developed to encourage and foster a love of storytelling in children. Storytelling to children is important. It helps them to imagine ways that life could be. Nurturing our children's love of stories helps them to imagine the world tomorrow and to create change, which is the essence of life itself. It's great fun. It helps our children to develop the confidence to read to themselves and gives them the power to 'read' their world and respond to it. Every storytelling occasion is special. Long after our children have moved on to other stories, they will continue to remember being the centre of our world, being cuddled and spoken to softly.
