About this Event

We invite parents and children to gather in the children's room of our médiathèque for a magical story time in French! Each month will feature a new selection of stories around a theme, read by one of our teachers. This informal activity is a great opportunity to attune your child's ear to French and get them comfortable in an immersive French environment.

What we'll be reading

This month our reader is Hélène Pasquier, who specializes in teaching French as a foreign language. Hélène will be reading three stories about little pigs that will be sure to make your little ones oink (or grouin)!
