Ursula’s storytelling sessions are a great hit with the children in school. They are spellbound by her tales but also enchanted by her storytelling style/technique that has them captivated from start to finish. The children never want her to stop – even the ones who find it hard to sit still are engrossed and totally engaged. The same can be said for the adults too! They are totally drawn into the stories and always request that she comes back again. Book her – you will not be disappointed.
