Exploring East Asia through Stories

We would like to bring a storytelling program to your preschool–6th grade library or classroom.

A staff member from the East Asian Studies Center will read a story from Japan, China, or Korea, depending on the needs of the educator. When scheduling permits, an IU student from China, Taiwan, Japan, or Korea will accompany the primary staff presenter. Through demonstrations or crafts, this student will bring a modern perspective about his or her country to the storytelling program.

Program Highlights

  • Listen to popular folktales from China, Japan, or Korea told by an East Asian specialist. Give your students a glimpse of another way of thinking and living.
  • Learn about modern China, Taiwan, Japan, and Korea from IU students who will give presentations about topics related to the folktales.
  • Choose from our extensive list of children’s books or kamishibai.
