To celebrate International Children’s Book Day, Play Wales has launched a new storybook about children’s right to play, written for primary school children and their parents.  

Fun in the garden reminds us how all adults in children’s lives can either support or hinder the right to play. It captures the importance of supportive and tolerant communities in helping children to realise their right to play.

How Fun in the garden was developed

Play Wales worked with a storyteller, cartoonist and year 6 children at Charles Williams Primary School in Caerleon to write the storybook.

This is a standalone sequel to Fun in the dungeon. Over several weeks, Class Afan considered the Fun in the dungeon story and came up with creative ideas and words exploring why the central character in the first book, the Queen, was so negative towards play.

Play Wales worked in partnership with Petra Publishing to develop this storybook.
