The Museum and Bloomington Public Library are teaming up for this English-Spanish language program, open to all families.
Bilingual Story Time is intended for all children, but we especially want to reach out to English Language Learning (ELL) students and families. This will be presented by Cecilia Sanchez, Adjunct Professor of Hispanic Studies at Illinois Wesleyan University, and Georgianne Schau, Youth Services Librarian at Bloomington Public Library.
Several short stories will be read in both English and Spanish. In between stories, Cecilia Sanchez will play guitar and lead participants in Spanish-language sing-a-longs. Everyone will be taught several Spanish words so they can participate. The program will wrap up with a craft activity where children will get to make their own cuckoo bird out of paper and brass fasteners or color a cuckoo bird.
