Steph Webb, Librarian at Brompton Library, writes:
It feels like an age since it was all arranged but we finally had our first bilingual story event for children today! With the French lycéé just down the road and a large French community locally, it made perfect sense to bring them into the library. The author JN Paquet came to read one of his books, The t-rrible, a great story about how being bilingual is special and the bilingual hero saves the planet!
The children were really engaged with the story, jumping up and down one minute then listening hard the next. After the story there was a competition to draw the main character and, although everyone got some stickers, we had three, proud gold medal winners.
Please join us for more bilingual storytelling in March: take a look at our events page for children for more details!
