Program Description

Event Details

In this Japanese tradition, a professional storyteller reveals a series of illustrations contained in a storybox as the narrative unfolds.  Before TV & comic books existed in Japan, there was Kamishibai (kami = paper; shibai = theatre).  With a wooden box, illustrations and a great narrator to tell the story, children will be enthralled with the stories and pictures! This program is recommended for children ages 2-4 and will meet on the second Thursday of the month.
