Moomin’s Birthday Story Time

Saturday, November 15th 2014 at 11:00 AM

This year, it is a 100 year since Tove Jansson started writing us Moomin stories. And we still love the little troll family just as much.

There is Snuffkin, Snork Maiden, Moominpappa and many other delightful creatures who all live in Moominvalley and have crazy adventures together.

Over the years they have been made into a television series, comic strips and there is even a Moomin House which you can visit in Finland!

Today we will read some Moomin stories and celebrate the legendary troll family.

Choo Choo! Train Story Time

Saturday, November 8th 2014 at 11:00 AM

trainWho has ever been on a train ride? Some of us take the train to work every day, others go to Simon’s Town on the train to see the penguins or maybe we take the train to go visit our family.

Trains have been around as a means of transport for so long, we often see them in movies or in story books.

Today Conductor Stuart will read some train stories and we will make our own trains.

“All aboard!”
