Adele Moss works at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading and the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford.
Adele is a veteran storyteller who has worked in many different settings, mainly around Oxford, for over 20 years. In 2011, she joined the wonderful Read for Good team. She comes to storytelling sessions equipped with bells and bowls, animal puppets who cluck, crow and bleat, and she is delighted to engage with anyone in a children’s ward. This means everyone from patients and their families to teachers, hospital staff, and especially with the rabbits, ducks, bears and Minions which she finds on children’s beds.
Her work might involve reading one of Read for Good’s beautiful books or telling a story with the child, using finger puppets and actions, singing silly songs or lullabies. The most important part of her job is finding that connection with the child and the world of the imagination.

“My son was very enthusiastic after they met, and really enjoyed the storyteller’s book and her obvious passion when reading to him.”
