Silk Road Storytime
In a world where 1 billion children are living in poverty, we love nothing more than sowing seeds of compassion in even the littlest people in our community!
Silk Road Storytime happens on the second and fourth Saturday of the month at Crossroads and is a time when preschoolers from around Hong Kong come for stories, songs and crafts that teach about a world in need. We’ve seen some as young as 4 and 5 eager to make a difference by, for example, donating excess birthday presents to Crossroads.
Anyone is welcome to join us for Storytime, although the content is pitched at 3-5 year olds and the sessions are conducted only in English. Just grab a fair trade latte from our cafe and drop by with your little ones. (Note – We love having tiny ones with us, but if your child is upset or disruptive, please take a break outside and join us again when calm, so that everyone can enjoy the story.)
Where: The Chinese Room, beside the Silk Road Cafe at Crossroads Village, 2 Castle Peak Rd, Tuen Mun
Time: 11:00 – 11:30
When: Email email@example.com for enquiries or latest Storytime dates.
Language: English (for our Cantonese story time, please click on the Chinese language link on the top left corner of this page.)
At Silk Road Storytime, we know that no hands are too small to help!
Donations towards the cost of materials are appreciated, though entirely optional. A donation box is at each Storytime session.
