Kamishibai Storytime Performance for Children

Date and time

May 21 6:00 PM


  4193 Park Blvd. Hillcrest San Diego, California 92103




Let's gather for a lively and entertaining early evening story performance featuring a variety of books presented in a Japanese style of folktale storytelling called Kamishibai. This is a children's storytime that the whole family and all ages can enjoy!

Kamishibai brings international folk tales and other stories to life for people, from toddlers to teens and beyond. In this Japanese storybox style "street theater" storytelling tradition, a professional storyteller reveals a series of illustrations contained in a storybox as the narrative unfolds. Before TV & comic books existed in Japan, there was Kamishibai (kami = paper; shibai = theatre). With a wooden box, illustrations & a great narrator to tell the story, kiddos will be in for a treat!

This storytelling program is presented by Walter Ritter of Write Out Loud San Diego. The Mission of Write Out Loud is to inspire, challenge and entertain by reading literature aloud to audiences of all ages.
