Tales of fish were enjoyed by children at the Queen’s Gardens in Shepparton yesterday.
It was Greater Shepparton’s first Storytime in the Park for the season and was well attended by young children looking to sing and get crafty, making their own fish bowls out of paper plates.
Shepparton library’s children’s and youth services librarian Emma Kennedy said it was great to be back telling children stories thanks to Greater Shepparton City Council’s Activities in the Park initiative.
The theme for the first Storytime in the Park was fishy tales.
‘‘We’ve had some fishy songs, a couple of stories with fish in them and children have made a fish bowl,’’ she said.
The next Storytime in the Park is at Mactier Gardens, Tatura, from 10.30am to 11.30am on Thursday, November 2.
Cost is free and people are asked to wear comfortable clothes, bring a drink bottle and be sun smart.
