SHREWSBURY CHILDREN’S BOOKFEST

MAY FESTIVAL 2015

STORYTIME & CRAFT WITH CBEEBIES PRESENTER,

CERRIE BURNELL

SATURDAY 2ND MAY & SUNDAY 3RD MAY 2015

SATURDAY 2ND MAY:

Cerrie Burnell, who was born with a right arm that ends just below the elbow, is one of the few visibly disabled presenters on television.  She was named in the Observer's top ten children's presenters and also featured in The Guardian's 2011 list of 100 most inspirational women receiving praise for tackling disability head on.

 

SNOWFLAKES was her debut book, illustrated by Laura Ellen Anderson.

The much loved CBeebies presenter, Cerrie Burnell, brought her one woman show to a sell out audience in Shrewsbury as she explored the amazing world of her new picture book, "MERMAID".   There was story telling and lots of fun craft activities for everyone.
