Fairy Tale time in Lugano

“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”
Albert Einstein

It's Fairy Tale time in Lugano.... in six different languages. Pick and choose your language and take time out to listen to a fairy tale with your kids along the beautiful shore of Lake Lugano.

The Family Festival is part of Lugano's Long Lake Festival. A native narrator will read a traditional story in his/her mother tongue.

On Thursday, July 11th it will be an English afternoon. Nicky Hildebrant will read "The Gruffalo", "The Gruffalo's Child", "The Smartest Giant in Town" and "Room on the Broom" by Julia Donaldson. These are four of my kids' favourite books and definately worth listening to.

Head down to the Parco Ciani to the Park'n'Read area at 16:00. In case of rain the reading with be held at the newly inaugurated Darsena in the Parco Ciani. That in itself is worth checking out.
