Grupo ñ inaugural storytime

Our friends Mariana and Jonah, a bilingual family who live in Westfield, New Jersey, decided they wanted to start a story time in Spanish at their local library. The inaugural meet up was this past Saturday and we trekked out from Brooklyn to be a part of it.
The turnout was great! Lots of families with everything from babies to tweens. Everyone listened to Mariana and Jonah read "Buenas noches, Gorila", "Huevos verdes con jamón", and other great stories. We used shakers, sang, and danced and had a great time. After we all clapped enthusiastically when the 45 minutes were over, we got a chance to meet and talk with the families that were there and the kids got a chance to play together and look at books in the amazing library.
It was a really fun day and really inspires us to start our own version of Grupo ñ in Brooklyn!
