Woods in the Books believes that a good story is a good start to learning a new language, made better when parent and child explore together. Each session of our Chinese StoryTime begins with a handpicked story, which is reinforced by game and craft activities, and followed-up by bringing the storybook home to read together. We wish to nurture positive attitudes towards Chinese learning (or re-learning) amongst young and old.
