The mobile library completed its third round. This time, in addition to educational activities in the “Library on Wheels”, children, teachers and parents also participated in workshops for drawing picture books and in the “Theater of Shadows”. Together we created picture books in Turkish, Serbian, Bosnian and Macedonian language, enriching the school libraries.
“Our Little Theater” is a traveling theater of shadows featuring adaptations of the picture books “Marko Travels the World” and “Bursunsul and Paskulina”. This theatre taught us how we should behave when watching a play, what types of theaters exist and of course the Turkish tradition of the shadow theater called “Karagjoz”. The actors Danny Stojanov, Ava Huseini and Blagojčo Stojanov were part of our team.
