This IS me (by schwitters)Default

Baby Meerkats!

A few months ago, a friend alerted me to Smories.com, a site where children can watch films of other children reading original stories out loud.

I submitted a story, which has been accepted and filmed and appeared on the site today:

Meerkats Stick Together

It's very weird, and hugely satisfying, to hear the words I wrote coming out of the mouth of a small stranger. If you happen to have children of your own, I'd love to know what they make of the site, and my bit in particular.

Full disclosure: There are monthly prizes for the most-viewed stories, so your click would be very welcome indeed.

As added incentive, did I mention it's a story about baby meerkats?
