National storytelling week 2013 and Giraffe restaurants
Tell Us A Story At Giraffe
Marking National Storytelling Week with Barefoot Books
28 January – 1 February 2013
To mark National Storytelling Week, family favourite restaurant group Giraffe have teamed up with award-winning children’s publisher Barefoot Books to present “Tell Us A Story” - a week devoted to getting young whippersnappers turning pages.
Parents, grandparents and carers simply bring your little ones anytime up to 5pm between Monday 28th January and Friday 1st February 2013 and get reading. As an added incentive, for every child enjoying a story there’s a free kids meal deal when an adult orders a main course.
As if that wasn’t enough, five lucky little ones will also have the chance to win a Barefoot Books library featuring 40 of the company’s most popular books, from story time classics to sing-along favourites, along with a £100 Giraffe voucher. All they have to do is enter the competition at www.giraffe.net or www.barefootbooks.com
Whilst giraffes-in-training tuck into dishes such as Pasta Pomodoro, Popcorn Chicken & Fries or Italian Pizza Bites, adults can indulge in a choice of mains including the Rodeo Chicken Burger with Cheddar, Mushrooms, BBQ Sauce & Onion Rings, Hot “Thai” Duck Stir Fry or California Sushi Rice Salad with Oak Smoked Salmon.
As one final incentive Barefoot Books will be offering 25% on books, games, puppets and puzzles to Giraffe fans. Simply go to www.barefootbooks.com/shop, enter giraffe at checkout, and let those imaginations run wild.
Tell Us A Story – bringing food and fiction under one brightly coloured roof.
