Natural Storyteller catches a Moonbeam

The Natural Storyteller has been awarded a Gold Medal in the 2018 Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards!  Launched in 2007, the awards are intended to bring increased recognition to exemplary children’s books and their creators, and to celebrate children’s books and life-long reading. The book has already been awarded First Prize in the Purple Dragonfly Book Awards.

Back in April Hawthorn Press launched a competition for schools and groups to win ten copies of The Natural Storyteller by Georgiana Keable, plus a visit from this award winning storyteller and author. The book is a seed packet of tales to open the mind and unleash a love of nature. Teachers were asked to write up to 100 words about how great stories can assist learning about our living planet. Countess Wear Community School, Exeter, won the competition and this Wednesday 10 October Georgiana Keable will visit the school to deliver several sessions of captivating stories to the pupils as well as a camp fire in the early evening.
