The Story Basket

The Story Basket contains 15 audio-only fairy tales and folktales, accompanied by music and sound to bring these magical stories to life. The collection is designed to be listened to throughout the academic year with five stories and accompanying resources selected for each of the three terms. It includes a host of activities, thoughts for discussion and resource ideas suitable for children aged 3 to 7. This truly is an enchanting compilation that will enthral audiences both young and old.

Trisha Lee’s storytelling creates imaginary worlds where your children will lose themselves. Music and sound from David Baird brings these tales to life as we take you on a journey of lost mittens, tiny elves and singing donkeys.

  • One year’s access to 15 audio-only stories and accompanying resources.
  • Downloadable PDFs containing an abridged version of each story.
  • Suggestions for arts, craft, drama and curriculum linked activities that can be used to explore each story.

The beauty of listening

I think these are fantastic. There is something really magical about listening to a story well told and these are beautifully told. They are full of humour and heart, Trisha's voice is warm , and the stories, though familiar, have individual touches that make you think. These reward repeated listening and will contribute to a rich story diet that children need to become storytellers themselves.

Reception are loving it

We've only had it for a few days, but already I can see how beneficial it will be. My class loved the Town Musician's of Bremen. They keep talking about it and we've listened a couple of times already. Can't wait to explore all of it.
