Criolla Christmas Story Hour

Christmas Cheer Came in Early December at the Criolla Preschool Story Hour

Over 45 children (not counting parents and nannies) converged on Criolla’s main room on Tuesday, December 6th to see our special visitor from the North Pole…SANTA. You should’ve heard the squeals of delight! Santa made his dramatic entrance, making it even more special for the children. After three songs that the children know by heart, with their singing and dancing, they were delighted by a Christmas story told by Ms. Iliana Vasquez, PT. Then, they all got to sit, talk to and take pictures with Santa. Every child was given an award for “Buen Oyente” (Good Listener) for their participation throughout the story hour sessions.

Biblioteca Criolla holds story hour and craft sessions for walk-in patrons and neighboring day care centers. Tuesdays and Thursdays regular story hour sessions are sought out by parents who want to keep their children interested in learning Spanish. The children listen carefully to the animated stories told by Mr. W. Delgado and Ms. Vasquez. The children are active participants and are very eager to raise their hands to answer questions posed by our storytellers.

Most of our Tuesday and Thursday’s story hour averages about 40-45 children along with their parents and/or daycare providers. The children left the Biblioteca Criolla storytelling experience happy, with handouts held tightly in their small hands, and their smiling faces, Criolla employees’ sole reward.

The staff of Biblioteca Criolla deserves its own Christmas accolades, for their dedication to Criolla’s littlest patrons, and in particular, Mr. William Delgado, for the eagerness and commitment he shows when preparing and executing his story hour lessons.

As always, Biblioteca Criolla could not be accomplished by one person alone, and in the spirit of the holiday season, Criolla department manager Patricia Vega THANKS William Delgado, Cecile Tropel, Iliana Vasquez, with a special thanks to Santa…Mariusz Kaczmar (a.k.a., Mario), for always lending a hand – even when he is asked more than his job requires!
