Tales from the Treehouse - Episode 11 – The Time we Spring-cleaned the World
Today, in a break from the norm (something we have all become used to recently!), rather than a story, we have a poem.
'The Time We Spring-Cleaned the World' is by Louise Gribbons, a teacher from Northern Ireland. This poem is intended as a way to explain to concerned young children, in a simple way, the world’s response to the Coronavirus outbreak.
But as some of the children who would enjoy the poem might be too young to read it for themselves, we have read it for you!
With permission of Ms Gribbons, and featuring a brief appearance by “Boris Johnson”, we hope you enjoy “The Time We Spring Cleaned the World”.
Told by Ben Lindsey-Clark, Tales from the Treehouse invite you to be swept away by your own imagination!
Stories that we listen to (rather than watch) are immersive and engaging. The listeners' imagination is free to draw its own imagery and create its own world, inspiring future interaction with the story and its characters.
Since we're working from home for a while - quite a challenge for a theatre company! - there will be plenty more stories coming! Please subscribe to our blog to keep up to date with the latest episode!
