In September 2014 Reflections Nursery & Forest School began a focus on Storying as a language of expression across the whole nursery. The concept was to understand how young children use narrative and fantasy to explore the world around them. By listening more accurately to the children’s stories, their words, gestures and conversations each day the more there was to hear. Children use stories to initiate play, to build worlds, to travel to fantastical lands, to make each other laugh, to explore the biggest questions of life, death and everything in between.

The stories in this book are a bare handful of those told by the oldest children in the nursery, but the handful is a rich one, well worth taking the time to explore.

So begin at the beginning, turn the pages, but know that what we have called Endings are really nothing of the sort.
