1. The Enchanted Story Tree

Broadmeadow Infant and Nursery School

BookBench inspired by the theme of habitats, flowers and insects.

The children on the design team explored non-fiction books and the theme of habitats, and this work informed the design. They asked, ‘What would our favourite reading habitat look like?’ The magical reading place that they devised is depicted on the BookBench. It features book trees with flower seats, plants that grow drinks, and a fire to cook marshmallows on.

Venue: Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery
