I Can Do Circus

This book was made by a group of children and adults who spent a term learning circus and puppetry. With Kids’ Own artist, Alex Hilvert the families from Sassella Park Playgroup told the story of what tricks they can do and why they like them.


This book is one of a series developed as part of the ‘Once Upon a Circus’ Project using circus skills, art-making and book-making activities to promote literacy, social skill and motor skill development. It also promotes relationship building within communities.
