The children listened absolutely beautifully while I read the icky-sticky tale of Little Robot.
Then illustrator Paul Cherrill created a snot-tastic Bickleigh robot, with help from the children. What should the robot look like? Brilliant suggestions from the children, including having a washing machine for a tummy (complete with a television set inside!) and having a light bulb for a nose!
Bit by bit, the drawing was created…
With a great surprise reveal at the end!
Paul also treated the children to a brand new ‘Robo-Snot’ song…
And the children had great fun joining in the sneezes! (Earplugs and tissues at the ready).
I loved making junk model robots when I was a little girl, and we were AMAZED at a specially-made robot brought in by one little boy. It even had light-up eyes!
Such a wonderful morning. A big thank you to the staff for organising the event and to the lovely children, whose enthusiasm for all things snotty and bogeyful made for a fun and fabulous morning.
