Jeannie's Adventure to the Countryside

Jeannie the Hen helps us to tell young children what life was like during the Second World War.

Jeannie tells the story of how she left the busy and dangerous city of Belfast and went on an adventure to the Countryside. There she met lots of new friends and discovered new things about farming and digging for victory.

Later in the year we’re publishing an Illustrated book of Jeannie’s Adventure to the Countryside. We’re currently working with Illustrator Susanne Shaw to create this and look forward to showing it to you soon. Early Year facilitators can get in touch to register their interest for a free copy. They can also borrow the loan box which brings Jeannie’s story to life.
