A co-operative game that introduces children as young as three to the art of story-telliing in a supported and non-competitive way.

Set up the wooden stage, add one of the two backdrops, a couple of props and then get ready to play. Take it in turns to roll the dice and introduce new characters and actions to your story.

The four chunky wooden dice offer ‘gentle direction’ to give ideas about the way the story could go - almost like scaffolding.

Tell-a-Tale comes in three themes - Fairy, Farmyard and Pirates. The game encourages taking turns and co-ooperation, and helps to develop skills in vocalisation, imagination, planning and creative thinking.
