Buildings

How evocative buildings can be! Young minds create scenes around them: seagulls cry around the lighthouse, a gentle wind turns the windmill sails to grind wheat into flour, and ship’s horns blare as they pass under the bridge to enter the safe harbour. So many bedtime stories start with buildings: Rapunzel in her tower, Hansel and Gretel in the gingerbread house – even the old lady who lived in a shoe! What stories can you and your children spin around these building pictures?
