Book Rental & Story Telling

All three of them love books and we got a small collection of books at home.  Recently JS commented that she is bored and has got nothing to read. I pointed the many books at home and said that those books are childish. (True though..most books are more suitable for preschooler and my own collection seems too advance for her). I haven’t build up a collection of books which is suitable for her age. We tried to buy a few, but that will not be a long term solution as we almost run out of storage for books. Hence I told her we will go rent some books.

Each time I drove around the neighborhood, I have noticed this shop with a big BOOK RENTAL sign. I have made a mental note to drop by for a visit.  We finally during the week JS was having her mid term exam (actually I told her we will only go after her exam, but both of us can’t wait).

I always have an impression that a book rental is usually dark and is full of racks and racks of books. Usually novels, love stories. I am  mentally prepared to be disappointed to find books that JS will find interest in.

To our great surprise, this place is spacious, bright and have more books cater for children, it is really a child friendly place. Children picture books, parenting books, recipe books both in Chinese and English.  They are arranged nicely on shelves, not racks.

One great discovery is that they have story telling session twice a month. First Sunday , being Chinese version and third Sunday English version.

We went for our first story telling session yesterday. The children loves it, though JL appears to be shy with both the teachers.  It was an interesting session which the children enjoyed.

Teacher Ng read the first two sets of stories

They were ask to do a simple art for the next activity

These two teachers are great story tellers, they interact a lot with the children.
