After the success of our lake district red squirrels soft toy, Oxley, and his journal, Maria Blakeley – Underscar owner, red squirrel advocate, blog writer and photographer – has kindly made up a Red Squirrel Story Sack.
The sack consists of a large cloth bag containing books, games, red squirrel puppet and other supporting materials to stimulate language activities and make reading a memorable and enjoyable experience for young children. Through use of the sack, Maria hopes children will learn to love and appreciate the wonderful red squirrels of Underscar. The book ‘A Hazelnut Breakfast’, contains photos of the red squirrels which Maria took in August 2016.
We’re sure families with young children visiting Underscar will love the new Red Squirrel Story Sack, which may be borrowed from the Underscar reception desk. Liz on reception will happily reserve the sack for you should you wish to book it out.
Happy red squirrel hunting!
