How the Robin got his red breast

Westminster Libraries had an incredibly busy half-term week, with events for children on most days in several libraries.

Local storyteller Laura Collins came to St John’s Wood Library to tell us this native American tale: How the Robin got his red breast. Many of us didn’t know any native American stories so it was fascinating to hear about this oral tradition. Also hearing about how the robin saved everyone from the dark and cold by bravely fanning fire with his feathers was particularly welcome on such a cold wintry day!

We also made our own robins, including Scarlett (age 3), below:
