As part of Premier’s work celebrating 80 years of the iconic children’s publisher Puffin, this month we unveiled a series of new online initiatives which have been created to keep children and families entertained during the lockdown period.
Initiatives include a daily Puffin Storytime and draw-along session on the Puffin YouTube, Instagram and Facebook channels, a Puffin Podcast series, an online book festival - the Puffin Festival of Big Dreams - as well as updated Puffin Schools resources to facilitate home-learning. Puffin are also working with numerous partners to ensure children can continue to dream big and engage with reading and the power of storytelling from their homes.
All of Puffin’s 80th plans form part of their mission to make stories accessible to children and spark their imaginations, which they’ve been doing since 1940 when they launched the first Puffins to support child evacuees during WWII.
