Therefore, the actors of the Youth Theater, beloved by many children, decided to help the children and their parents and read a bedtime story to everyone who called. And I myself decided to try myself in the role of a storyteller, but today not only for my little daughter, but for all the children of the Far East,”said Natalya Ekshenger, director of MTS in the Khabarovsk Territory.
