Have you ever thought about how your family got to America? Or all the strength and courage that they needed to move to a different country to start a new life? June is Immigrant Heritage Month! During this MOCAKIDS Storytime at Home, we’ll be shining a light on all those who’ve fought for a better future for themselves and dreamt of a better life for their families. Together, we’ll read My Chinatown by Kam Mak and Dreamers by Yuyi Morales. If you have one, bring a photo of the person or people in your family who first emigrated to America!
MOCAKIDS Storytime is free to the public. To join, simply register here! Please note that this workshop will be recorded via Zoom and available on Facebook Live for one week.
MOCAKIDS Storytime is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council; by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Legislature; and by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
