Former teacher launches new book to encourage children to exercise

A 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 illustrations.

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 more information on Little Lamb Tales and Miss Lennon's latest books can be found online or contact her directly on via email.
