Former teacher launches
new book to encourage children to exercise
fun new book encouraging young children to enjoy exercise will be launched
in Liverpool later this month by a former School teacher. Floga with Flossie is the ninth book to be published by bestselling author Jude
Lennon and it will be officially launched at independent bookshop Write Blend,
that can be found on South Road, Waterloo, on 21 June 2017, to coincide with International Yoga Day.
Miss Lennon, who runs storytelling business Little Lamb Tales, will host a
special reading of the story during the event, which starts at 4pm, and will
also be signing copies of the book.
She will be joined at the event by yoga instructor Marie Cope, who will be
demonstrating some yoga moves to children and parents and also Merseyside
illustrator Holly Bushnell, who has designed and created the colourful book
Miss Lennon, who taught for 18 years, said she was delighted with the new book
and looking forward to sharing it with children.
She said:- "This is a great fun book following the adventures of Flossie
the lamb and her friends as they discover a new form of exercise - 'Floga'.
It's about promoting exercise, friendship and teamwork in a fun way to children
and I'm really excited to finally be able share the story with youngsters. What's more I'll be showing and encouraging children to join in with some of
Flossie's 'Floga' moves to celebrate International Yoga Day. It will certainly be an opportunity for children and parents alike to relax and
have a bit of fun. We all lead such busy lives these days and it's easy to forget that sometimes
even children need to find ways to relax. Physical exercise such as yoga or 'Floga' is great for mindfulness and overall
well being and in turn this can impact very positively on children's learning."
Miss Lennon, who has recently been nominated for two Bizmum Awards - Creative
Bizmum of the Year Award and Host of the Year Award; has teamed up with
Liverpool based Mitchy Titch Yoga instructors and will be delivering
storytelling sessions at classes over the next few months. As well as writing books
Miss Lennon, a member of Team Author UK, also runs storytelling events and
creative writing workshops within Schools. She is currently touring Schools
across Liverpool as part of the Bobby Colleran road safety campaign.
Her book S.T.O.P (Superbob Tells Off Parents), which has been written in
conjunction with the parents of 6 year old Schoolboy Bobby Colleran;
tragically killed outside his School in West Derby in 2014 - is the second book
in the Superbob series and encourages parents to think about parking more safely
outside Schools. For
