Colours is the first in the series of Storycises books using age appropriate stories designed to be acted out by children and adults alike. Colours is for pre-school/reception age children.

These ‘action’ stories create fun and interaction from the moment the first page is turned and all the movements are based on the natural stages of child development. They are designed to give children repeated practice at important fundamental movement skills vital for learning and independence, school and sport in a way which fires up their imagination and gives fun and pleasure. As well as working on important motor skills, the children improve other areas as well – for example, vocabulary, concepts, listening skills, memory, language and early literacy skills. All of these are important for success at school!

The books are written by two experienced paediatric physiotherapists, Wendy and Jane, who have been using the same principles to help thousands of children achieve success in many areas of their lives – from handwriting to ball skills, from sitting on a chair without falling off to increasing confidence to try new activities.

They have both seen children’s physical ability change over the past 20 years and developed the Storycises books, initially as a programme for schools, out of the need to get children moving, fitter and with improved movement skills needed in the classroom. The stories are designed to allow children to experiment and improve by providing repeated practice, thereby giving the chance to improve.

Fun whilst learning has always been at the heart of what Wendy and Jane do as physiotherapists – we hope you enjoy our books!

We are starting our first book - Colours! Eagerly awaiting typsetter's draft.

Wendy and Jane are paediatric physiotherapists who fill their work with fun and laughter. They use stories as a way to deliver physiotherapy programmes to improve children's motor skills. Publishing these story books is a way to get the established Storycises programme for schools into a format that can be enjoyed by parent, caregivers, child and siblings.

Wendy has been a chartered physiotherapist since 1991. She divides her time between clinical work as a specialist childrens physio, Storycises, lecturing around the UK and managing her private paediatric practice. Wendy lives in Dorset with her husband and loves to walk, draw, play the piano and visit local beaches.

Jane has been a chartered physiotherapist since 2003, having been a paramedic with the London Ambulance Service with a parallel career in the Royal Naval Reserve. She works clinically with children of all ages, lectures around the country and spends time promoting sport and inclusion for young people with disability.
