The Gecko and the Echo with Liz Fost

The Gecko and the Echo

Join professional storyteller Liz Fost who will take us on a flamboyantly fun tropical tale of love, fame and friendship from the creators of the international bestseller ‘The Lion Inside’… and meet a very special visitor.

Goldy wants one thing, and one thing only – to be a STAR. On the sunny island this gecko calls home, it’s always THE GOLDY SHOW, morning ’til night.

But when you’re dazzled by the limelight, it’s easy to lose sight of the world around you. And when Goldy’s performance starts to go wrong, the little gecko discovers that friendship means so much more than fame. Because when you treat the world with love, then love will come echoing back.

This funny and touching story reminds us that treating others with kindness makes the whole world a better and happier place.
