Every snowflake is different, every snowflake is perfect! Bring the family for interactive story-telling using Cerrie’s new picture book.

Born without a right forearm and hand, Cerrie has never let her disability hold her back. She began her career in acting before graduating to a presenting slot on the children’s channel CBeebies, where she proved immediately popular, but also provoked much media coverage as one of the few visibly disabled presenters on television. Since her presenting debut Cerrie has made numerous other TV appearances including being part of Channel 4’s presenting team for the 2012 Paralympics. She was named in The Observer's list of the top ten children's presenters of all time and featured in The Guardian's list of the 100 most inspirational women.

Cerrie only learned to read when she was 10, after struggling with dyslexia, however, she is now a keen writer and has published and staged her own play, as well as a recent show for children, The Magical Playroom. Snowflakes is Cerrie’s first picture book.
