As part of the Words Count and Imagination Library projects, aimed at getting children and young people reading, North Lincolnshire council is working with local author and illustrator, Hannah Dale to host Brigg’s Big Secret this week.

Hannah’s latest children’s story, Mr Hare’s Big Secret, is providing inspiration for a variety of literacy themed activities taking place at Brigg Primary School, Brigg St Mary’s Primary School and The Angel.

“Reading storybooks was a hugely important part of my childhood,” said Hannah.

“I have many treasured memories of favourite books, where the illustrations were just as memorable as the stories themselves.”

Hannah has already delivered inspiring workshops at Brigg secondary schools, drawing on her own career in design and business to discuss key issues of enterprise and employability.

This Thursday, July 7, The Rhubarb Theatre Company will perform an interactive storytelling of Mr Hare’s Big Secret at The Angel in Brigg market place.

Children under five, with their parents and carers, are welcome to join in this free event, from 2.15pm to 3pm.

Places are limited, so call 01724 297287 to book.
