Details:

Join our resident storyteller Sari Mira for another exciting English-Arabic Storytime from the comfort of your home! Children ages 4+ and their parents are invited to join Sari who will read Something Happened in Our Town by Drs. Marianne Celano, Marietta Collins and Ann Hazzard, teaching a few Arabic words and phrases along the way.

A note on content: This story explores sensitive topics of racial injustice and police brutality.

Something Happened in Our Town follows two families — one White, one Black — as they discuss a police shooting of a Black man in their community. The story aims to answer children’s questions about such traumatic events, and to help children identify and counter racial injustice in their own lives.
