Preschool and Nursery
My Storytime is a mix of listening, learning, drawing, drama, singing, and dancing. I cover a number of skills e.g: social interaction, developing self-confidence and encourage children to use their imagination.
My sessions are fun, engaging, interactive, creative, and educational. I cover a range of ages from preschool to Year One and Two school groups.
My music audiobooks have different themes, which at times connect to the children’s learning programs. Some stories are ideal for use at the beginning of the school year when new children are settling in. Others are energetic with movement and dance.
However, they all stimulate listening and observation skills! Children learn about animals and insects, as well as other life lessons, and they enjoy singing and dancing along. Occasionally I use props and visual aids.
My Storytimes complement Key Stage 1 and areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage.
I have a number of stories tailored for different seasons throughout the year.
'Christmas Magic' is perfect for Christmas performances
(which I have done at Treetops Nursery and other workshops).
The audiobook includes a sing-along song that children can learn quickly.
It also incorporates Christmas themes such as giving and sharing.
'Chris the Caterpillar' is used in the summer when children are learning about the colours of flowers and spending more time outdoors. My story 'Weird and Wonderful' works well for Halloween. It teaches children about the less popular bugs such as centipedes and slugs and the importance of us not stepping on the insects. Plus children love to draw spiders in their webs!
The recent addition to this category is my Easter story called 'Easter Egg Hunt'. It was a hit on my Easter Library Tour 2019.
Music Audio Stories are not only great for preschool, they are also brilliant for homeschooling.
They provide an entertaining tool to not only stimulate children's listening abilities but also improve their visualization skills.
You can create your own fun Storytime at home using my Storytime Package or let your kids enjoy the activities, while you go and have a cup of tea!

After every first visit, I publish children’s drawings in an art gallery, making them a part of my creative world.
This is popular with parents! At subsequent visits, children take their drawings home.

I would like to express our thanks to Anna Christina for an amazing story time. It was very expressive, interactive, and exciting for all. The children loved taking part during the session. I would highly recommend this style of storytelling as it encourages development in young children.

Both groups were engaged in the workshop presented by Anna Christina. She explained the workshop well to the children and was calm and sensitive to their needs and responses. They really enjoyed acting out the story and got the message of putting rubbish in the bin.

Anna Christina is always very friendly, welcoming, and professional at all times. Her sessions are always well planned and delivered, and children and parents alike are delighted with the stories and related crafts. It's always a pleasure to host one of her sessions.

The presentation and story was absolutely fantastic. The children were all sitting, staring at Anna Christina. They all interacted well and did some beautiful pictures and lively acting. Please come again soon.

Music Audio Stories has come to the market with a powerful way to entertain our little ones. I highly recommend these audio books, I guarantee that kids will love them and ask for more.
Remy Cruz - Busy Mom Monologues™
It was so interesting, the story was amazing, the children were sitting down without moving and listening nicely. They had a lot of fun and Anna Christina interacted with them so well. It's something really interesting because they use a bit of their own imagination.
