Tuesday, August 20, 2013 from 10:30 AM to 11:00 AM (EST)
Exposing children to another language has many benefits. Come along to Tuggeranong Library and Celebrate the 2013 Children's Book Week theme: Read Around the Universe.
This is a special story time where some basic key words of stories will be read aloud in another language.
A representative from the ACT Billingual Education Alliance will also be available at the conclusion of the session to answer any questions that you may have.
