Mark McCumber guest reader

This fall, ACFSJ in partnership with the Public Library invites you to take your imagination on a journey with the storyteller Mark McCumber for an hour of storytelling.

Join us at the Centre des Grands-Vents to hear a story, do crafts and meet new friends in French.


The ACFSJ library offers your children reading initiation activities.


Formula: Animations last between 30 and 60 minutes. They include a reading by the facilitator and can be extended by a craft or a nursery rhyme.

For those who are interested in storytelling hours ? The titles selected are aimed at children aged 3 to 5 years but all are welcome. Children must be accompanied at all times by a parent or responsible adult.


Inscription: Inscriptions, although not mandatory, are desirable to allow the host to plan the animations.

Free activity for members ! Book initiation activities allow children to discover the pleasure of reading in a warm and fun atmosphere.

* The activity takes place either in the library or in the intergenerational room!

Reading promotes the development of the imagination 

The words of the story you are telling cannot describe everything. The child will fill this void by imagining what is not written in the book, first by connecting it to what he knows, then by inventing. Similarly, notes Diane de Fougeroux, "the images in a book are, by nature, still. But the children will make the image move, they invent the next step, their brains work, whereas with television, everything is imposed on them, there is nothing to imagine. "And he added: "At school, you quickly see the students to whom you have told stories: when you ask them to write a short essay, they have ideas right away. »
