Library Storytelling Morning activity for May 2013

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 Carrie as storytellers.

Recommended for children between the ages of 4 – 8. Forty 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.

three billy goats

No one draws trolls better than the Caldecott Honor artist Paul Galdone, and this beloved read-aloud classic about the three brother billy goats who dare to cross the hideous troll’s bridge to get to the sweet grass on the other side has never been more dramatic.

(Nadie dibuja los trolls mejor que el premiado artista Paul Galdone. Este clásico para leer en alto sobre las tres cabras macho Gruff ,que se atreven a cruzar el puente del horrible troll para poder pastar en el otro lado con mejor hierba, está contado con el mayor dramatismo.)
