This picture story (based on a Turkish folk tale) will help to develop your child’s language and literacy skills, as they listen to you read the text that appears on the screen (the text is displayed in both English and Turkish). Reading this story with your child is a fun way of encouraging them to enjoy books and the whole process of storytelling, and is great for stimulating their imagination.
How to extend the magic
Why not create a special storytelling den in the corner of the room and create your own tale. It can be about anything you like. Think about who your main character will be and where your adventure will be set (a castle, a forest, at sea, in space, underground - wherever you want). If you like, you could begin your story with 'Once upon a time...'.
