Storytelling Around the World

Stories, stories and more stories . . . that’s what Storytelling Around the World is all about (kind of like the hokey pokey!).   The next one will be Saturday, April 5 at 11:00 AM in the Children’s Department and we invite kids of all ages to come and be a part of this great tradition.

We’ll be focusing on stories that kids might like to tell; we’ll also play some games that will help bring out the storyteller inside them.  You can find some ideas for storytelling games and stories for kids to try in these sources:
