Story Hour: Magical Creatures (ages 3–5)

Wed May 22 @ 14 h 30 - 15 h 30

3–5 year-olds and their grown-ups are invited to join us for a magical Story Hour full of songs, stories, and fun!

For this Story Hour, we’ll read stories about magical creatures of all sorts (fairies, unicorns, elves, friends, and dragons too!*) including Backyard Fairies by Phoebe Wahl (pictured here). We’ll also sing songs and practice rhymes.

This program is entirely in English, and no translation will be provided. This participatory program is intended to encourage children to actively engage with stories. Children’s and Teens’ Services Manager Celeste Rhoads and Children’s and Teens’ Services Intern Amber Auer will read books and lead you and your little one in songs and hand-rhymes during a live, interactive session. Plan to join in, sing along, move around, and model movement and listening for your little one. We ask that all caregivers put away their phones and other electronic devices for the duration of this program. With your help, we hope to inspire children to become lifelong readers!

Check out the recommended reading lists in the Children’s Library to find more books about magical creatures.

*Participants are encouraged to dress up as magical creatures for this event!


Important information: This event is for Library members, and advance registration is required. Caregivers are expected to familiarize themselves with the Library Policy for Children and the Rules and Code of Conduct so that we can provide a pleasant library environment for all patrons. Questions about collections and programs for children and teens can be sent to the Library’s Children’s and Teens’ Services Manager, Celeste Rhoads: celeste@americanlibraryinparis.org.
