I am a teacher. I love telling, and sharing stories with children.
When my children were little, they attended a Playbus, this was a play project based on a double-decker bus. Many of my story books have links to this involvement as well as adventures from my teaching career.
Have you ever been involved with the school Christmas production?
If you have, I am sure you would understand some of the events in this story book.
One year in particular the events leading up to the final performance were very challenging but it gave me the inspiration for the story. I wrote the story for the children who were the characters in the Christmas Play that year. We could certainly laugh about it afterwards.
The Christmas play was always very hard work, with problems along the way, but certainly a lot of fun.
Our final school performance ended up well in the end.
With the right amount of, 'Ahh!' from the audience.
I am sure many teachers and helpers will be able to relate to the events I this rehearsal.
A bus is always included somewhere in my books, this was certainly a challenge with the Christmas play, but yes there is a bus.
