Please see my blog (www.vickihowieblog.wordpress.com) for some seasonal stories especially written for those working in toddler groups and nursery schools. They are designed to keep the children (and their carers!) engaged with lots of actions, mimes and songs, and to connect with the children via their own limited experience of life.
