20 things to do with a LittleBird (Part 2)!


LittleBirdThe number of places a little bird can take you never fails to surprise us puffins! This summer 20 of our all time favourite stories took pride of place on bookshelves across the land. But they didn’t just perch there in all their finery. They took readers to the streets of London, the wilds of Wales, under the floorboards and into the future! They certainly got the team over at LittleBird inspired (they specialise in tracking down the  best deals for families).

Here are ten ideas about how you could make a Puffin Book come to life with activities inspired by the adventures. ‘ONLY TEN’, we hear you cry ‘but you said there were 20!’ . If you want to see the next ten ideas and for your chance to WIN all 20 books in the collection head over to LittleBird’s blog.
