East Asian Bilingual Storytime

Chinese & English
Sat, Mar 25, 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 Spring, featuring the story, A Morning with Grandpa.

Mei Mei finds her grandpa practicing tai chi in the garden. “Wow, it will be fun if grandpa teaches me that!” thought she. However, it seems that tai chi is harder to master than it seems to be…. Don’t worry! Mei Mei has her own way to deal with the challenge. She decides to…. teach her grandpa yoga that she learnt at school instead! Come to listen to this story and try your own tai chi and yoga moves!

妹妹看到外公在院子里练太极。“哇,如果外公能教会我太极就好了!” 可是,这似乎没有看起来这么容易……不过别担心!妹妹有她自己的办法。她转而教起了外公瑜伽! 欢迎你前来听这个故事,说不定你还能发明出属于自己的太极或者瑜伽招式哦。
