Flying Start @ Camborne Visited By Children’s Story Book Author!
Flying Start @ Camborne had a very special visit, from ‘Grandma Paint Pot’ who’s written a number of fantastic children’s books!
Grandma Paint Pot – who is actually called Donna Painter – wrote titles including ‘The Selfish Shellfish’.
Donna kindly came in to the nursery to read the stories to the children!
She also chatted to them about how she spends time at the beach and she loves looking in all the rock pools with her grandchildren, which is how she came to write her books!
  
Our thanks to Donna for giving up her time to come and speak to the children, and inspire them!!
