It’s been a while since I blogged, but I had to squeeze in one last post this year just to say Merry Christmas from Storytime and our small but dedicated team.
We’re absolutely indebted to our readers and the brilliant support you give us to help Storytime thrive. Plus we’ve had another fantastic year of collaborating with talented illustrators from all over the world. We really are so lucky.
I haven’t been able to fit in blogging recently, as the end of 2016 was unexpectedly busy. As well as producing Storytime, the heart and soul of our company, we have a Studio, which creates children’s content for clients. This year, we’ve worked on a variety of exciting projects. They have included creating a series of digital magazines for a children’s brand in Finland and developing a new children’s magazine for a publisher. We’ve also created teaching resources for a former Olympic venue and tourist attraction. (See some of the resources for schools we’ve created here). We’ve also been working on book concepts for publishers and developing new ideas for Storytime. Hectic, challenging, but massively fun!
There are changes coming for Storytime in 2017, which I’ll share in the new year. For now, I’ll say there’s an exciting new poetry series and a whole new category of stories by fresh voices. As always, there will also be the classics you know and love: fairy tales, myths, legends, folk tales, fables and stories from around the world. There’s much to look forward to.
To everyone who has been part of Storytime this year – readers, illustrators, writers, bloggers, teachers, librarians and supporters all over the world – we send you huge and heartfelt thanks. We can’t do it without you. Here’s to more stories and more adventures, magic and laughter in 2017!
Merry Christmas everyone!
