The Gruffalo visits Nature Trails children

Nature Trails Gruffalo

There was delight for young book lovers at Nature Trails Day Nursery in Cawston as they received a special visit from one of their favourite literary characters.

To mark the 25th anniversary of the beloved book, children were thrilled to welcome ‘The Gruffalo’ to the award-winning setting on Coventry Road, along with gifted storytellers from nearby Hunt’s Bookshop in Rugby, who read the Julia Donaldson story to the captivated group in the sunshine, all whilst the Gruffalo acted out the accompanying actions.

Back in the classroom, pre-schoolers were immersed in themed activities in honour of the milestone celebration, including creating their very own Gruffalo masks and Gruffalo crumble, before embarking on an exciting Gruffalo hunt in the woodland area outside.

Nature Trails Business Administrator, Louise Gulliver explained;

“This was a magical and memorable experience for our children, and we are so grateful to the wonderful staff from Hunt’s Bookshop for making this possible. We believe in the power of storytelling to engage and inspire young minds, and The Gruffalo is the perfect example of a timeless story that continues to captivate children’s hearts and inspire a love of reading.”
