Maybe… by Chris Haughton – Baby & Toddler Storytime pack

Host a Storytime event for Chris Haughton’s vibrant and mischievous new picture book!

Three little monkeys, and their big monkey, are sat high up on their branch in the forest canopy. “Ok, monkeys! I’m off," says the big monkey. “Now remember. Whatever you do, do NOT go down to the mango tree. There are tigers down there.” Mmm… mangos! think the little monkeys. They LOVE mangos. Hmm… maybe… maybe they could just look at the mangos? That’d be ok, right?

From Chris Haughton comes a funny, suspenseful and keenly observed cautionary tale about pushing boundaries and indulging your more mischievous, cheeky side (when nobody is looking).

The digital pack from Walker Books includes:
- Downloadable storytelling tips by professional storyteller, Vanessa Woolf
- Downloadable activity sheets
- Downloadable teachers’ notes written by the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education

We can’t wait to see your Storytime events in action! Keep us updated with photos on Twitter using #Maybe and tagging ReadingAgency and WalkerBooksUK.


Keeping your reading group active while social distancing

Are you wondering how your reading group can continue to meet, even while you’re social distancing? With many people at home with family, flatmates or on their own, we know that books are so important to provide comfort, solace and escapism. Staying socially connected, and keeping your regular reading group meetings in your diary, is going to be very important in keeping up morale and supporting everyone’s mental health as we adjust to a new way of living.

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
