East Asian Bilingual Storytime

Chinese & English
Sat, Apr 15, 2023
10:00 am – 10:30 am

Come and listen to a bilingual story time presented in partnership with the Center for East Asian and Pacific Studies.

This month's theme is Asian/Asian American Culture, featuring the story, Drawn Together.

Have you ever had trouble with communication? Feel reluctant or that it is difficult to show love to your family? Then this book, Drawn Together, might provide an answer for you! The boy in the book also once found it impossible to communicate with his grandpa who could only speak Thai, until he took out his colored pens and… Boom! Magic happens! Join us to enjoy this warm-hearted work. We will also have a “draw together” activity afterwards!

你是否曾经因为交流而困扰过呢?是否觉得不好意思向家人表达你的爱意?那么这本《一起画》说不定能帮你解决这个问题哦! 这本绘本的主人公也曾经觉得自己和只会说泰语的外公无法交流,直到他拿出了彩色画笔……嘭!奇迹发生了! 加入我们来一起听这个温暖的故事吧。我们还会有“和家人一起画”的互动环节哦!
