The activity forms part of the library services for library members. They will need to show their library card and send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org confirming their participation in the activity any time from the first day of the month and up to the week of the Readers Theater session.

“The Bremen Town Musicians” by Brian Wildsmith
Friday, February 21st 2014 at 18h.
Hoping to start over, an old donkey leaves the farm to travel to Bremen where he will join a band. On the way, he meets a dog, a cat, and a rooster. With a bray, a bark, a meow, and a cock-a-doodle-doo, they become fast friends and decide to travel together to join the Bremen Town Band.
(Con la esperanza de empezar de nuevo un viejo burro deja la granja para viajar a Bremen donde se unirá a una banda de música. En su camino se encuentra a un perro, un gato y un gallo. Con un rebuzno, un ladrido, un maullido y un “kikiriki” enseguida se hacen amigos y deciden viajar juntos para unirse a la banda de la ciudad de Bremen).
