Library Storytelling Morning activity for June 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 Marcus and Trisha 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 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.

You may already know the tale of a not-quite-so-bright little chicken whose encounter with an acorn and gravity convinces him the sky is falling, but you’ve never seen the story told this way. A brilliant collaboration brings us a bold and colorful retelling of the classic tale, as crazy-eyed Chicken and all his panicked friends run away from the sky and right into an eye-catching gatefold surprise.

(Puede que ya conozcas el cuento del no muy brillante pollito cuyo encuentro con una bellota y la ley de la gravedad le convenció de que el cielo se estaba cayendo, pero seguro que nunca habías visto la historia contada de esta forma. Esta brillante colaboración padre-hija nos trae una audaz y colorida nueva versión del cuento con una gallina de ojos locos y todos sus amigos aterrorizados huyendo del cielo y directos a una llamativa sorpresa).
