Sensory story

We have included the video of Michael Rosen telling the story, for you to use along with some suggested resources to help you tell the story with your child. 

You might find that Michael tells it a little fast, it is okay to pause the story until your child has had time to explore the sensory resources that you have offered to your child to accompany the story. 

Alternatively if you have the story at home you may be able to share it with your child yourself.
