Bring your children to the UN Bookshop on 21 February at 12:30 pm, 1:30 pm and 3:30 pm for a special edition of Storytime for UN Kids Day! 

What is UN Kids Day?
Every year we are opening the UN Headquarters to children to discover the world of the United Nations through an interactive programme. Activties include meeting a UN Security Officer, interacting with the Staff Counselor’s therapy dog Chloe, going on a treasure hunt and learning about the Global Goals in a special SDG Kids Zone

What is Storytime?
Storytime is a part of the SDG Book Club that aims to engage young people (ages 6-12) to foster a love of reading and sharing of ideas with friends, parents, and educators. The SDG Book Club provides children with the opportunity to discover new voices and concepts from around the world in all six official UN languages. 

Who are the Storytellers?
We are very excited to welcome two ourstanding storytellers this year. Award-winning children's book author Elizabeth Suneby will read her SDG Book Club selections "Iqbal and his ingenious idea" (12:30 pm) and "Razia's Ray of Hope" (3:30 pm) with us. While Mari Skåre, Chef de Cabinet to the President of the 74th Session of the United Nations General Assembly, will read the UN's children's book "Frieda makes a difference" (1:30 pm). 

We hope to see many of you there for all three Storytimes!
