Listen to the story My Dog is as Smelly as Dirty Socks by Hanoch Piven, and explore the use of “simile” in comparing objects with animals or people. Children will then be guided through the technique of mixed media to create their own alphabet craft with socks/cloth and coloured paper.

For children aged 4 to 7.

Registration is required with free admission. If registration is full and you would like to be placed on the waiting list, please email Sonja_Wong@nlb.gov.sg, with your name, mobile number, child’s name and age, with the programme title as the subject head.
