We wrote stories set in Africa influenced by the wonderful Tinga Tales. After we had planned, written and edited our stories we spent time on the finishing touches such as the blurb and front cover. We then enjoyed reading our stories to our friends in the class. This was really fun and a valuable experience in how to tell a story effectively and interest the listener. But we didn't stop there. We were so proud of our books that we then spent an afternoon reading our stories to the children in Class R. We had very positive feedback.
