One of the most beloved storytelling traditions in NYC is now online! In previous years, you could bring your little ones to the Hans Christian Andersen statue in Central Park for an hour of storytelling every Saturday at 11 am. The statue is an iconic setting for a repertoire of international fairytales and folk stories since 1956. Bonus: The stories are often accompanied by live music! This year, the readings will be held online on the Hans Christen Andersen Storytelling Center's Facebook page and YouTube Channel until public gatherings are permitted in Central Park. Ages 5 and up.
