Story Hour: Use Your Voice (ages 3–5)

June 29 @ 14 h 30 min - 15 h 30 min

Story Hour:

Use Your Voice

For ages 3–5

3–5 year-olds and their grown-ups are invited to join us for an interactive Story Hour in a small group! This program lasts an hour, and features songs, stories, and hand rhymes in English.

For this Story Hour, explore how illustrators and authors show us who is talking and give us clues as to how to use our voices in picture books, such as The Cookie Fiasco by Dan Santat. This Story Hour will be hosted by Visiting Children’s and Teens’ Services Librarian Jessie Hudson, with the help of Library volunteer Mary Wessels. They will read books and lead you and your little one in songs and hand-rhymes during a live, interactive session. This participatory program is intended to encourage children to actively engage with stories. Plan to join in, sing along, and move around, and model movement and listening for your little one. We ask that caregivers put away their phones and other devices for the duration of this program.

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.
