 Did you know that research shows that a simple way to enhance intelligence, creativity, self-esteem, and academic ability in kids is to give them the gift of knowing more than one language? And, that this can be valuable and can be done, even if the parents do not know the language!

A very easy way to start this process is by having your kids have fun with the new language through stories and poems.

To help you do this, the creator of the “13-min A Day” Online Hindi Immersion Program and Co-Founder of Cheeni for Tots, Rakhi Sharma, brings you a FREE On-line Hindi-English Bilingual Story Time for kids.

This unique story-time for tots (aged 3-8) and their parents, is designed to be a time of fun and frolic, a time to enjoy stories, poems, and songs in a new language, Hindi (together with English explanations and interactions). This allows kids to soak in the language and learn, without even realizing it! It is open for parents and kids from all the beautiful cultures of the world, and kids/parents do not need to know the Hindi language.

To preserve interactivity, spots are limited (to just 20), and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis and (going by the popularity Cheeni-for-Tots’ other programs) will likely to disappear fast. So, hurry here to register, NOW!

Online Story time will be Tuesdays, 6:30pm PST Starting April 3rd, 2012. To participate, sign-up to participate at cheenifortots.com/Library/storytime
