A Cheadle author has hosted a sea-faring story telling event at a Moorlands library.
Sue Brunt, aka Nanny Sue, was at Cheadle Community Library on Saturday (August 14) for a story session all about her book ‘Jack, The Pirate with a Secret.’
Nanny Sue told the Times & Echo: “The Story Telling Session at Cheadle Community Library was a great success. I was absolutely thrilled to have been invited to support the library and all that it has to offer.
“We were all absolutely thrilled that Sue Walley Cheadle Town Mayor came along to the Story Session. I am sure that she has a very busy schedule so I am very grateful that she was able to give her time on the Saturday morning.
“I was absolutely thrilled that 13 children attended the reading of Jack, The Pirate with a Secret. The children were all extremely well behaved, they listened to the story with real enthusiasm and were completely engaged in listening attentively.
“At the end of the story the children put forward their ideas of what Jack’s Secret might have been. It was amazing to hear their ideas.”
Sue added: “After the discussion we sang a number of action songs involving pirates and boats, we had a lot of fun and everyone even the adults participated.
“At the end of the session each child was given a party bag with a few mementoes to further support the Story Telling Session.
“A draw took place and a little girl received a personally signed copy of Jack, The Pirate with a Secret.
“I thoroughly enjoyed offering the Story Telling Session for Cheadle Community Library, it was great fun and lovely to see the response from the children who attended.
“I would like to thank the library staff for their hard work in enabling this event to take place.
“I would particularly like to thank Jan for the great window display that she created to advertise and to promote the event.
“I do hope to be able to offer further Story Telling Sessions for other local libraries and maybe for local schools too.”
