Bruce Whatley activity sheets
Exclusive to National Simultaneous Storytime! Bruce Whatley, illustrator of Pete the Sheep, has given all National Simultaneous Storytime participants the opportunity to download specially drawn illustrations of the Pete the Sheep characters to use in conjunction with your National Simultaneous Storytime activities! We also asked what Bruce Whatley thinks about Pete the Sheep and National Simultaneous Storytime!
Bruce Whatley Q & A
Why do you think the storybook, Pete the Sheep, is so popular with children?
Pete's pretty cheeky. And the idea of sheep and 'baa-bers' is crazy but, well natural somehow. I think often it is the simplest stories that work best. Pete the Sheep is a simple story told and illustrated simply which allows the humour and characters to come across. Where else would you for a hair cut but Shaun's Salon?
Why do you think it's a good idea to have a National Simultaneous Storytime?
Anything that encourages children to read is a good thing. This simultaneous Storytime session gives the children a sense of being part of something quite big and fun. It's a great way of sharing a reading experience.
To help out with your National Simultaneous Storytime event and function we have put our heads together and come up with some great Pete the Sheep inspired activity ideas!

PIN THE HAIRSTYLE ON THE SHEEP
This game is a simple variation of Pin the Tail on the Donkey. We have just replaced the donkey with a sheep and the tail with whacky hairstyles. The aim of this activity is to pin the hairstyle to the sheep’s head. How close can ewe shear a sheep?
