I finally had the opportunity (and clear schedule) to allow me to check out story time at the Hans Christian Anderson statue in Central Park. Ela and I woke up early Saturday morning, grabbed some coffee and bagels and headed out to enjoy some kids and the early morning sun. Story time is held every Saturday at 11am from June to September. Its really fun to see the kids face light up in delight; and we sat in anticipation just as much. Tigers and yams and princesses, oh my!

"On Saturdays all summer long for more than 50 years, New York children have gathered around Hans Christian Andersen´s statue at the Conservatory Pond in Central Park to hear his tales told by a fine ensemble of storytellers."
