Join in the fun as an adventurous mynah surprises Kay and her grandma, on their morning walk through the neighbourhood. The Little Mynah can talk, and not just in one language! Striking up a conversation, the three soon become great friends. But when Little Mynah’s family decides to join him, and settle down in the beautiful banyan tree, Kay’s parents rally their neighbours to get the noisy birds out. The mynahs soon move on, but not before they use their multilingual skills to help Kay and her grandma save the day. In the process, they open everyone’s ears to the music of different languages, and help them to appreciate the ‘din’ of friendly neighbours chatting – like mynahs chirping in the trees, at the end of an exciting day.
This storytelling workshop is mostly in English, suitable for preschoolers age 3 to 6 years. Parents or grandparents are welcome to participate, especially if you are bilingual or multilingual. Children will get a bird’s eye view of the diverse language and cultural environment in Singapore, and discover how Little Mynah picks up words in different languages that they can use every day.
Venue: National Gallery Singapore
