SEASON SIX IS HERE! I am thrilled to share a brand new story with you after months of hibernating...er, daydreaming and writing. The Mistake Artist is my very first two-part story and I think you will love it. It features a little girl who is a bit of a perfectionist about her art, and a magical being who takes the girl's "mistakes" and showcases them as things of beauty in her faraway realm of magical beings. Tune in next time for part two of this story and hear how Em learns to reframe her mistakes as opportunities.If your tiny person wants to share a story they've written, please send photos or recordings of it to rhea@littlestoriestinypeople.com.

Little Stories are a highlight in our house and both my kids simply love Little Hedgehog's adventures. The stories are well written and extremely creative and imaginative and encouraged my children to be more creative with their own stories they tell. Bedtime is not bedtime until we've listened to Rhea

We just enjoyed our first story, which my 4 year old wanted to hear twice! A pleasant way to pass lunchtime together when we are both too tired to make pleasant conversation. I love the presentation style. The story was familiar enough for my child to follow and introduced a few new words and ideas to chat about. Well done!
