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 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 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.

Deep in the woods in an old white cabin, three friends make their pumpkin soup the same way every day. The Cat slices up the pumpkin, the Squirrel stirs in the water, and the Duck tips in just enough salt. But one day the Duck wants to stir instead, and then there is a horrible squabble, and he leaves the cabin in a huff.
(En una cabaña en lo más profundo del bosque tres amigos hacen sopa de calabaza cada día del mismo modo. Pero un día el pato quiere remover para variar y se produce una horrible riña y acaba dejando la cabaña enfurruñado.)
