Tudor storytime with Catherine Brooks
Posted By Claire on May 19, 2017
Are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin…
Yes, today as a special treat for Anne Boleyn Day 2017, we have a storytime video. MadeGlobal Publishing’s Catherine Brooks reads Alan Wybrow’s lovely children’s book Tudor Tales: William at Hampton Court. It’s a beautifully illustrated book and I love the story. Catherine does a wonderful job at bringing it to life too – thank you, Catherine, CBeebies will be calling you!
Is there a Tudor story that you think would be perfect for a children’s book? Do share in a comment on this post. Comment before midnight on 24th May 2017 to be in with a chance of winning a copy of Alan’s book. One comment will be picked at random and the winner contacted. You can find out more about the book at getbook.at/tudor-tales

I think Prince Arthur and Katherine’s wedding day might make a great story for kids. It’s the only happy event that comes to mind… x
I loved this! There are not many Tudor stories that spring to mind that would be perfect for a children’s book however, I would love to see a story on Henry & his six wives that has been toned down for children. I know there are a lot of Tudor children’s books but I’ve never read one, as a child, I was always more interested in the real facts. Saying that I am going to start buying children’s Tudor books as I would love to read it and see what they have changed/left out.
I’d like to see a story about Catherine Parr and how she ruled as regent while Henry went to France.
Great for kids
I think Anne of Cleaves is a great role model for children. She was brave and overcame prejudice and bullying triumphed in spite of it all and lived against the odds.
She is truly inspiring!
Very cute story. Perhaps one of the royal children’s nurse’s children that might have played with Princess Mary, Princess Elizabeth or Prince Edward.
Perhaps a story about when Elizabeth was young and Mary still cared for her like a mother, or at least a loving older sister. I always think it’s sad that aspect of their relationship is glossed over.
That was such a cute and adorable story! Perhaps a story about Anne Boleyn as a little girl and a wonderful spring day at Hever Castle.
