The York Press spoke with Sue Ellis about her latest Book
“The skills you encourage will have benefits for a lifetime” said Sue Ellis when speaking to The York Press. The newspaper had a conversation with her about her new book ‘Proud Patrick Peacock and Other Stories’.
The book consists of 6 very funny stories that have birds as the main characters. Each story is meant to teach children an important life lesson.
All of the stories are set in Great Britain, in the areas of Arran, Coniston, Liverpool, York, Sheffield and London.
Fables and lessons contained in them will help children with the problems that they face and because of the stories they may become wiser individuals. They will be taken on different adventures when the stories are read to them and learn to make better decisions.
The books adhere to the Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) and Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL) curricula.
Sue is an educator and has been in the profession for more than 3 decades.
Over the years she has spent a lot of time listening to children and their frustration. Her stories are a way for children to deal with these frustrations, while still having fun.
She currently resides in York with her family.
