We're delighted to be supporting the Children's Hospice South West this Christmas and Business Cornwall published the following article about the release of our Chrstmas song today!

"Falmouth publishing house, Clickety Books, has recorded and released a Christmas carol to help raise funds for Children's Hospice South West.

 The song, 'The 12 Days Of Clickety Christmas', features a reworked version of the well-known carol, using several characters from the Clickety Books series of books which help develop children's speech and language skills.

 

The song and animated video can be enjoyed on the Clickety Books website and donations can be made on the same page.

MD, Richard Ayre, said: "At Clickety Books we are actively engaged with children, parents, schools and nurseries and we know the work done by the Children's Hospices is simply amazing.

"The new hospice by the sea at St Austell has been open a year now and we hope people will help make sure it continues to provide outstanding support to families.""

Craig Green enjoyed talking to Tiffany Truscott on BBC Radio Cornwall this afternoon!

CraigAwardsweb2You will hear Craig's enthusiasm as he talks about the whole team effort that is needed to create Clickety Books that children will love and enjoy while they develop their speech, language and literacy skills.

The team of writers, illustrator and speech and language therapists work together to ensure that fun is the essential ingredient in Clickety Books and the vital speech and language mechanics remain hidden under the bonnet! Our fabulous narrators Rik Mayall, Catherine Tate and Ronni Ancona provide the final element of fun and surprise as they bring the Clickety characters to life. 

The whoops of delight as children enjoy the books as well as our recent Awards make it all worthwhile!
