Autumn arrives and time calls for stories. The ‘Sábados a Contar‘ is back at the Almeida Garrett Municipal Library, with Hora do Conto sessions followed by thematic workshops for the younger ones. October weekends are full of stories.
In a double dose, at 11:00 am and 3:30 pm, the story chosen for the weekend of October 9 is intended to help children and adults deal with their problems. The author of “O problema dos problemas” is award-winning child poet Rachel Rooney, and illustrations are by Macmillan Award winner Zehra Hicks.
The third session of ‘Sábados a Contar‘ takes place on October 16th and brings the book by Natalina Cóias, “Nico”, a very special unicorn that fills everything with joy thanks to his magical sneezes. Readings start at 11am and 3:30pm.
“A charming story about accepting the confusing world we live in” is what Pippa Goodhart’s “What a mess” tells. The character Francisca’s need to organize everything around her – toys, plants, and even people – is read at the Almeida Garrett Municipal Library on October 23, at 11 am and at 3:30 pm.
The ‘Sábados a Contar‘ in October ends on the 30th, with a single session at 3:30 pm. The book chosen is “A Mala Assombrada”, by David Machado. The story recovers the imagination of the supernatural and brings a ghost that chases two brothers, one afraid of everything and the other not afraid of anything.
All sessions, designed for children aged three to six, are free to participate but require prior registration.
