Library Storytelling Morning activity for December 2012

Come to the “tellebration” with us! Monthly Saturday morning meetings from October to June where kids can enjoy selected stories in English, this time with Trisha and Marcus as storytellers.

Recommended for children between the ages of 4 – 8.Thirty-five children per session and two adults per child maximum. 45 minutes approx.

The activity forms part of the library services for library members, with an optional 2 for 1 registration. This means each child with a library card can bring one guest.

Library members will need to show their library card and send an e-mail to biblioteca@iie.es confirming their participation in the activity any time from the first day of the month and up to the week of the Storytelling morning.

Non-members who want to participate have a symbolic associated cost of 3€ per child for each session. The tickets can be obtained at the library check-out desk the same week of the Storytelling morning up until 15 minutes before the beginning of the activity.

If at some point the number of members registered reaches the maximum capacity limit we will announce that tickets are sold out trough the IIE Facebook page.

From his perch high atop Mount Crumpit, the Grinch can hear the noisy Christmas festivities that take place in Whoville. Annoyed and unable to understand the Whos’ happiness, he makes plans to descend on the town and deprive them of their Christmas presents and prevent Christmas from coming.

(Desde la alta cima del monte Crumpit el Grinch puede oir el ruido de las celebraciones navideñas que tienen lugar en Whoville. Molesto e incapaz de comprender la felicidad de los “Whos” decide bajar a la ciudad y privarles de los regalos de Navidad e intentar evitar las siguientes Navidades.)
