RAP_Myra_PosterA2V5_2000

Embark on a flight of imagination together in a story that goes beyond the book! Learn to turn a storybook reading into an immersive adventure in this parent-child session designed to spark the imagination and provide a creative space for family bonding. Led by Woods in the Books Creative Resident Myra Loke, this programme encourages and assists parent-child pairs in coming up with ideas for all kinds of imaginative play for education and leisure activities.

This month’s adventure is inspired by the book The Bathing Costume by Charlotte Moundlic. No knowledge of the book is necessary to take part!
