Stories for young children in Paris
The imagination is at work from birth. To help young children construct their own world, early-learning reading activities are offered throughout the city.
The magazine for children Tralalire and the Atelier de la Bonne Graine, for example, organize workshops for children aged 2 to 6. Fun and didactic, they take place on the first Saturday of each month. Pre-booking necessary.
Another place for tiny tots is the Poule Mouillette, a Parisian tea room with warm and friendly decor. Kids can enjoy a delicious snack in the play area and parents will find interesting items for baby in the shop. What’s more, on two Wednesdays each month the two owners organize a story time session for children with nursery rhymes, little stories and hand games … Plenty of fun to help youngsters from the age of 3 discover the world.
