This picture book story will help to develop your child’s language and literacy skills, especially their listening skills. Watching it together is a great way of encouraging your child to enjoy books and the whole process of storytelling. The activity is also great for stimulating their imagination as they listen to the the narrator tell the funny tale of a princess who did not want to get married.

How to extend the magic

Why not create a special storytelling den in the corner of the room and come up with your own tale with a twist. It could be about a mermaid who was scared of the sea, a pirate who didn't like treasure or bee who couldn't buzz but barked instead! See if you and your child can come up with a really silly story!
