Welcome to Tales for Kids,
and to a world of storytelling.
My name is Cynthia, and I have been working with preschoolers for the past 20 years.

I engage preschoolers in storytelling by visiting early childhood centres with my collection of puppets, storytelling apron and boxes of stories. I also provide storytelling workshops.

I have written a children's picture book "Safina and the Hat Tree" which is my personal story when I was diagnosed with breast cancer whilst working as a director of a childcare centre.
