'Your stories have ignited something magical for Ella, she tells stories and acts them out and asks to be told stories all day long and I have never seen Maya so still as when she's watching your stories. We have been very lucky that you have given your time every week, it's so so appreciated. Oh and Ella was so happy when you used her name in the story!'.
Debi runs her online storytelling and craft classes for families, schools and nurseries
Debi also runs storytelling classes and assemblies where she focuses purely on sharing her interactive world stories and songs with children in nurseries and primary schools.
