Come and listen to a bilingual story in Mandarin and English!
This month's theme is friendship, featuring the story of Kon and Pon by Masako Matsuno.
A small fox and raccoon-dog (tanuki) meet. However, their families forbid them from becoming friends. How will they act? Are they going to overcome this obstacle? This warm-hearted story of friendship shows us how a raccoon-dog and a fox make friends with each other despite of their differences. This story is split into two parts. Please enjoy part 1 of this showcase of friendship.
The Center for East Asian and Pacific Studies, in partnership with the Champaign Public Library, presents East Asian Story Time, a monthly family event series celebrating cultural and language diversity in our communities. Each bilingual storytime event will feature a story read in English and Chinese, Japanese, or Korean to spark children’s interest in East Asian languages and cultures. All are welcome!
