Every Picture Tells a Story

Children from Washington and Churchill elementary schools, with a little help from Middle School students, recently participated in an after-school program at the Cloquet Public Library. The program, Every Picture Tells a Story, was a look at Kamishibai, a Japanese form of storytelling. Children were introduced to this method of storytelling using colorful poster-size illustrations. Afterward, they got a chance to create their own storyboards and share them with the group. Middle School students pitched by helping the younger students construct the storyboards. The program was a joint effort between the Cloquet Public Library and Cloquet Community Education. Additional projects between the two organizations are scheduled for the new year.
