The Story Hour for Kids program hosted by the Hamazkayin Ani Dance and Lyra choir member, Gorun Koyounian, took place on Friday, February 17, 2017. He presented Anahit Sarkissian’s two stories called Black Spider and Moon Shirt with such a unique diction that immediately inspired the young readers. Then, he sang and tought the children the song of the Black Spider trying to captivate them. The kids were fully engrossed in the story.
Later, the little ones drew the heroes of the stories, and at the end of the program, they tasted the book-shaped lovely cakes tastily cooked by Gorun's hard-working mother, deacon Nina Koyounian.
The next morning, on Saturday 18 February, Story Hour for Kids program committee members Avo Kazanchyan, Sevan Taslakian, Nanor Shirinian, Meghri Bakarian, and Anahit Balian took part in the Children's Festival organized by the Diocesan Council of Armenian Education. In the Hamazkayin booth, the hands of the children participating in the Festival were decorated with Armenian bird letters of their initials or other beautiful pictures. The children also filled miniature drawings with colors and enjoyed the solo dance of ANI choreographic group member, Emma Gaspari.
The next Story Hour for Kids will take place on Friday 17 March at 6: 00- 7:00, at Hamazkayin's Mushegh Ishkhan Library. We are looking forward to your children, so that to enjoy the next story with them. Their participation will give a special meaning to our programs.
