              MOCAKIDS Storytime!

Come to the Museum of Chinese America every 2nd and 4th Thursday at 3:30pm for stories, finger-plays, songs, and more in English and Mandarin! Interactive songs, nursery rhymes, and arts & crafts will accompany this bilingual storytime. A lively 30-minute combination of fun activities and language exploration will enhance your young child’s word skills and vocabulary, both of which are important for a strong, growing reader.
 
Appropriate for ages 3-6, but younger and older siblings are welcomed. Our program invites everyone from native speakers to those seeking their first exposure to a new language.
