Here at the Green Bean Studios, the growth and happiness of young children is central to what we do. To ensure that language and communication skills are developed from infancy, we seek to provide fun, interactive books and toys to entice and excite children. In an age of technological advancement and electronic gadgets, we help children to find a love for playing, reading and learning from early childhood.
Celebrating summer time with Green Bean & Friends
We created a super cool woodland space which included fun, educational and interactive activities for children, parents and carers to visit and be submerged into the world of Green Bean & Friends.
Storytime sessions ran over one-hour time slots throughout the day, each session lasted around 20mins (this included every child receiving a gift to take home, each gift bag had a colour pack, stickers and an information booklet about the Green Bean Collection.)
A Special guest joined us on the day Anita Frost the Founder/Author of the Green Bean Collection, Anita came along to read from her authored collection throughout the day 'What a treat'.
With our fictional character, Green Bean, we take children on an adventure of learning and understanding, highlighting key vocabulary and identifying areas of interest for children. Through enhancing their imaginations and broadening their horizons, we help children to think creatively and grow in confidence. By emphasising the importance of friendship, belonging to a community and helping others as well as teaching them about shapes, numbers and colours, we offer a holistic approach to teaching. Authored by Anita Frost, the Green Bean Collection is now a household favorite, helping parents and carers engage their early readers with great books and toys.
Over two days Green Bean & Friends met with over two hundred and fifty children I know WOWZERS!.
Along with many passers who pop in to say 'Hi' or to learn more about the Green Bean Collection, what a great two days all round.
Have you met Carrie our lovely storytime coordinator?
Carrie shared the adventure stories of Green Bean over the two days alongside introducing all the attending children to some fun follow on activities. Each activity gave the attending children space for their creativity and imagination skills take flight.
Thanks to all the little ones who gave their super artwork for Green Bean, well-done everyone.
Our newest product is designed for toddlers specifically. We will be releasing a series of hardback books, created to withstand playtime and games. This durable product will be perfect for young children to take control of their own reading journey.
