East Asian Story Time

Sat, Oct 8, 2022
10:00 AM – 10:30 AM

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.
