Parents' café with reading aloud in Frankenberg and Korbach

The Youth Service of the Waldeck-Frankenberg District with its Early Intervention Department participates in the action programme "Catching up with Corona". This is a support programme of the Federal Early Help Foundation, funded by the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth.

On 10 and 11 October, the public libraries in Frankenberg and Korbach will once again be holding parent cafés with reading aloud. In cooperation with the two municipal libraries, the offer is aimed at parents with small children, mainly from birth to 3 years of age; siblings are also welcome. The current Corona rules are observed at the parent cafés.

A child-friendly environment and guidance by library staff and a pedagogical specialist offer the best conditions for all visitors to the parents' café to spend a few pleasant hours in the public libraries. Parents can look forward to interesting and stimulating read-alouds and can go on a journey of discovery into the world of books together with their child. In addition, parents and children can borrow so-called discovery backpacks, which are filled with e.g. age-appropriate picture books, read-aloud books, a hand puppet, a radio play and a Tonie figure.

At the event on Monday, 10 October, 4 p.m. in Korbach and on Tuesday, 11 October, 10 a.m. in Frankenberg, the focus is on "Balduin bleibt grün" by Fritzi Bender. In her reading show with hand puppets, there is a lot to laugh about and a lot of fun. Surprisingly, the puppets can talk all by themselves. Whether Fritzi - a trained speech therapist, children's book author and actress - can ventriloquise is something the participants of the parents' cafés are sure to find out for themselves.

As there is only a limited number of participants in the parent cafés with reading aloud, registration is required.

Participation is free of charge.
