Library Storytelling Morning activity for October 2014

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

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

Now in collaboration with American Space Madrid it’s a free activity. Library members gain privileged access, with an optional 2 x 1 registration (this means each child with a library card can bring one guest).

Registration has to be done through the IIE website (filling the form linked to the activity at the Agenda).

October 2014 storytelling around the book:

 “Goldilocks and Just One Bear” by Leigh Hodgkinson

In this award-winning author illustrator’s witty sequel to the traditional Goldilocks story, Little Bear is all grown up and Goldilocks is a distant memory. One day, Little Bear wanders out of the woods and finds himself lost in the Big City. Will he find the city too noisy? Too quiet? Or just right? And what are the chances of him bumping in to someone who remembers exactly how he likes his porridge?

(En esta ingeniosa secuela de la tradicional historia de “Ricitos de oro” el premiado autor e ilustrador nos cuenta que el oso pequeño ha crecido y Ricitos de Oro es un recuerdo lejano. Un día, el pequeño oso sale del bosque y se encuentra perdido en la gran ciudad. ¿Encontrará la ciudad demasiado ruidosa? ¿Demasiado tranquila? ¿O simplemente bien? ¿Y cuáles son las posibilidades de que se encuentre con alguien que recuerda exactamente cómo le gusta su papilla de avena?)
