Storyteller: It is really important to introduce children to animals

A former primary school teacher has started taking two ponies into schools in Bradford as a way of educating the children about animals they have never met before. Karen Garrad has written stories about the two ponies, named Spot and Alfie, which she reads to classes before leading in the animals.

Karen says there are many youngsters in the area who have not met such animals before, something which she considers very important for their learning.
