You can see our partnership policies and past work here...www.smithmartinpartnership.com

Our passions include...

 

The sheer delight upon children's faces in a workshop when they have entered the world of imagination with the creator of the book that they are holding...

 

The energy you can feel when the role model of the author or illustrator opens up the landscape of potential for the young person...

 

The giving away of free books to children...every small library must start with at least one book...

 

Helping to start children's book groups, particularly in inner city areas, where book groups often don't go...

 

Working in partnerships with communities and organisations who haven't explored our project before...a different sort of horizon extending experience

About Us

City Stories is about bringing children's books directly into communities, through community groups, schools, libraries and Children's Centres.

 

Making connections with children and families. We often work in areas of great diversity and richness of cultures.

 

We aim to reflect that in our work and authors for the project.
