Face-to-face workshops: with certified AIM Facilitators/Mentors

Boucles Violettes kit

This is a contemporary take on the old classic Boucles d'or. The slightly punky-looking Purple Locks visits the Three Bears' house and gets into much too much mischief. This story is an open-ended one, which can lead to the story extension and play extension activities that are introduced at this level.


Enhance your kit with the following extras:
Prince Veut-Tout- Reader

Prince Albert has been brought up in the lap of luxury. The more material goods he has the less satisfied he feels.  Because of his greedy nature he becomes known as Prince Veut-Tout. One day, while speeding on his motorbike, he almost runs over an old man. This event triggers a sense of remorse in him and causes him to re-evaluate his life. One night, looking up at the stars, Prince Albert decides to become a space explorer. He heads off into the heavens in his spaceship. Years later, he returns to his home with his new-found alien friends.

Ali et la pluie- Reader

Ali lives in a North African village with his wife, Nadia. One day he decides to clean his water tank, a job that he has not done for ten years (during which time his waistline has expanded considerably). His problems start when he has trouble fitting through the opening at the top of the tank. Then he is attacked by mosquitoes and finally, when rain starts to fill the tank, he remembers that he does not know how to swim. Nadia has been practicing her dance routine during this time so has not heard his cries for help, but eventually she arrives and rescues him from drowning.
