bpl-ch8Hopefully, you and your children (if you have any) will be fortunate enough to be able to attend the wonderful dance exhibition to be given by the talented young students from the Chu Ling Academy, as announced in my previous post. While you’re there at the BPL, why not enhance your child’s experience with world culture even further by taking home some of our world music cds for their listening pleasure.
