Story Hour Boot Camp

Event date: 
Tuesday, July 15, 2014 - 9:00am

In honor of Universal Pre-K for New York City, Bank Street Bookstore is offering Story Hour Boot Camp, a series of training workshops in children’s read-aloud literature and performance, taught by award-winning children’s bookseller-performer Andrew Laties, and the storytellers at Bank Street Bookstore’s famed Daily Story Hour.

Boot campers will:

• Learn performance tips and techniques for working with young children
• Explore read-aloud-friendly picture books and identify those that fit well within their performance style
• Have the chance to put their skills into action by reading a story at one of our story hours
• Get feedback about their performance from the teacher and class members 

Pre-K teachers, librarians and parents alike are invited to register in advance for any and all of these dynamic workshops, to be held Tuesday, July 15 through Thursday, July 17, 2014 from 9am to 12pm. 

The workshops will cost $25 per session, and $60 for all three. Class size is limited to seven students. Refreshments will be served.

Want to attend but short of funds? Schloarships are available.
