The Colour Monster is all mixed up! Can you help him sort out how he’s feeling?
Join in to read a story, play games, craft your own Colour Monster, and bring home a copy of 《我的情绪小怪兽》to enjoy. This session supports parent-child language immersion and is friendly to non-Chinese-speaking parents!《我的情绪小怪兽》is a translation of The Colour Monster by Anna Llenas.

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.

When: 11.00AM – 12.30PM, Sat 6 Oct
Where: Woods in the Books, 3 Yong Siak Street
