In this edition, we talk about the importance of family stories. Whether it's an old folktale, or a story of how your parents or grandparents met, or simply a funny tale told by someone in your family, they are powerful! We also reflect on World Read Aloud Day 2017, and the huge impact we were able to make with your help. PLUS we have three new stories for your and the children in your life: 'The African orchestra' by Wendy Hartmann, Joan Rankin and illustrated by Marlise Joubert, 'Where's is daddy?' by Xolisa Guzula and Mandi Mbude, illustrated by Carolize Jansen, AND 'Bhuti rabbit's boring day' by Helen Brain, illustrated by Samantha van Riet.
