STORYTIME at Cleckheaton Library took on a life of its own when Ray Stearn paid a visit as part of National Storytelling Week.
Ray, a children’s storyteller for over 30 years, entertained the youngsters with Can of Worms themed stories, poetry, puppets and songs.
As a qualified librarian, he encourages children to develop a love of books that sustains them for life.
Over 20 families attended the event with everyone thoroughly enjoying the afternoon of fun and learning.
Kirklees Council has been running a selection of 12 events called a Yorkshire Mixture focusing on songs and stories from the region.
Ray will be re-opening his Can of Worms at Mirfield Parish Church on Saturday April 2.
