This winter , ACFSJ in partnership with the Public Library invites you to take your imagination on a journey with the storyteller Mark McCumber for an hour of storytelling.

Join us at the Centre des Grands-Vents to hear a story, do crafts and meet new friends in French.

The ACFSJ library offers your children reading initiation activities.

Formula: Animations last between 30 and 60 minutes. They include a reading by the facilitator and can be extended by a craft or a nursery rhyme.

For those who are interested in storytelling hours ? The titles selected are aimed at children aged 3 to 5 years but all are welcome. Children must be accompanied at all times by a parent or responsible adult.


Inscription: Inscriptions, although not mandatory, are desirable to allow the host to plan the animations.

Free activity for members ! Book initiation activities allow children to discover the pleasure of reading in a warm and fun atmosphere.

* The activity takes place either in the library or in the intergenerational room!

Why read stories to children?

                Mathilde de Robien | April 21, 2017

Reading a story to a child is opening it up to the wonderful world of words and ideas, boosting your imagination, giving you a taste for reading... But it's already spending a quality time with you
Another story! asks your child, insatiable, when you close the cover of the book you just read to him. How can this childish "addiction" to literature be explained? Is it only to delay bedtime? Maybe. Spend a special time with an adult? Sure, but not only... The child is eager to learn. And telling him a story means teaching him to speak with a varied vocabulary, to structure his thoughts, to imagine, to know himself, to apprehend the reality of the world around him. And also, to give him a taste for reading. So, let it go, and... tell it!
