Animal Corner

I spent a great afternoon at our local Farm Shop today, reading Bertie stories and cuddling guinea pigs! There were also rabbits, ferrets, mice, rats, snakes, spiders, a hedgehog, giant snails, chicks and an owl!

Many thanks to Dan from Pet Connexions for letting me come along and join in the fun at Brocksbushes Animal Corner Event.

If you’d like me to visit your event, nursery or pre-school please fill in the comments form below – I can bring along activities for the little ones and lots of information about guinea pigs, so it’s more than just storytelling (but don’t tell Bertie that!)

In the meantime, if you live in or near Northumberland and you’d like to meet all Dan’s animals, he’ll be at Brocksbushes Farm Shop again tomorrow (8th June) 11am-3pm.
