Childrens' stories

Writer and story teller, Lesley Dowding, lives to bring story into the world of children and adults, alike.  Her listeners are encouraged to bring to life imagination and creation, to dance with the stars and enjoy the moment.

Her stories, told in true oral tradition,  come from all over the world, as well as from her own imagination.
