Language Storytime at the Duke International House (Durham, NC)
For German speaking families and children, CarolinaKinder.com presents
story times on the 3rd Saturday of the month at the Duke International House.
Please check their
Calendar for the dates
and themes. From the website:
"The "M?chenstunde", or storytime is really intended to be much more than that. In fact, we might just call it "Kinderstunde" from now on, unless any of you have any inspiring ideas (and we are very open to those!)
On many occasions we will simply pick a theme and work or rather play around that, incorporating stories, games, finger plays and songs where fitting. This allows for more of an open program, for young and older alike.
On other occasions, we will host programs in which the age factor may be more of a consideration (e.g. actual "Maerchen" require an older audience).
And of course we will have Kasperletheater for everyone!"
Sarah P. Duke Gardens, Duke
University (Durham, NC)

Nature Story Time for children ages 3-7 first Saturdays and
