    S3E27 | Kinderstube, Oktoberfest, and Summer Break

    This is likely one of the shortest episodes we've brought to you. 

    Nonetheless, it is worthy of your time, as we talk about the upcoming classes, events, and announce a short summer break.

    As always, please connect with us at podcast@gaimn.org and let us know what you think!

    We'll talk to you again in September. Until then, Happy Summer '21!

    Storycast: "Die anhänglichen Pantoffeln"

    If you'd like to read along, you can find the text to the story by clicking this Link

    This story comes from the shelf of Merkel's Erzählkabinett.

    As far as your German-speaking children are concerned - earmuffs are not needed, but prepare for some added depth to the meaning of Herrn Meiers adventures. If you have a German group to talk with, your interpretation of "Herr Meier" would make for a really fun conversation. :)
