Judy Paterson Tells Stories to Special Needs Groups

Judy Paterson visited the library to tell stories to one of our Reading Groups, whose members have learning and physical difficulties. Judy brought along photographs of her horse and explained to the group how her own horse was used in many of the illustrations in her books.
She then told the story of 'Tamalane', and again Judy's own horse featured in the story. Many of the group participate in ' Riding for the Disabled', and have a love and affinity to horses, as Judy herself clearly does . The group enjoyed the story and were able to recognise the horse illustrations and appreciate the process of illustrating a story. Judy also told other stories, which she had gathered from around the world.
