Little Bird Tales is a storytelling and e-learning tool that can be implemented in hundreds of ways. It is great for children of all ages, and gives a story telling voice to those too young or who can’t read and write!
Little Bird Tales is a great story telling, e-book making website and a free app designed to really nurture children’s creativity. A school can sign up freely and create tales which children can share with each other in a school, or with other schools.
