Yet another excuse to head to the fantastic V&A Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green: this exhibition celebrates the work of Judith Kerr, who escaped Hitler’s Germany before settling in London in 1936 and becoming one of our best-loved children’s authors. The retrospective features original art work and sketches, and allows children to step into the world of Kerr’s best-loved stories with particular emphasis on her 1968 classic, The Tiger Who Came to Tea, which has sold over 5 million copies. Children can have tea with a life sized ‘tiger’ or curl up and read in Mog’s basket (of Mog the Forgetful Cat fame). During half term (Mon, 30 May-Sun, 5 June) they can also to listen to readings of The Tiger Who Came to Tea (10.30am, 11.15am, midday), embark on a Tiger Trail for the chance to win a prize, and make tiger feet and paws at the arts & crafts table (2-4pm). Suitable for ages between 3-12.
