Managed to spent one hour for the library kids weekly session for the first time, Alhamdulillah. Maryam was quite excited to hear and really looking forward for it. As soon as we arrived at the car park, it is expected that the crowd will be big from the cars being parked in front of the library. That was not a normal view during that hour on weekdays except if there's event happening there.
Yup, as expected, the room was full. Full with children and mothers from various backgrounds; locals, Chinese or even Muslims. Alhamdulillah. Even the story teller surprised with the large crowd.
Before the story time, they were singing nursery rhymes just to make sure the kids got comfortable and had two way interactions. All of them were very friendly and sporting, especially mothers whom also singing together. Maryam was not very familiar with some of the rhymes, so she just observed and watched others. Plus, she's quite distracted with crayons and colours on the table in the room.
After the story time, kids were then having a short session of arts and craft. They coloured, cut and paste the papers given according to their own creativity. Since the story was about frogs, so they were colouring and making a paper frog =)
