The Fire Monster - A story for children, by children
Published by, On Reflection Publishing, part of Reflections Nursery & Forest School
As part of a focus on ‘Storying’ throughout the nursery in 2014/15 we have been collecting children’s stories. This story began when a two year old boy call ed Max looked into the stove in the Pre-school garden and said, ‘There’s a monster in the fire…’
The children, all under 3 years old, have created their own mythology to explore opposite but connected ideas such as: appearance & disappearance, friendly & scary, big & small.
We continue to collect stories and we are also offering them back to children to develop further and to perform. We are making visible children’s work as authors and illustrators and will publish more stories during 2015, created by children.
