CORONA—Storytime: The Ugly Vegetables by Grace Lim
October 13, 2020 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
CORONA—Home Gardens Library is launching a series of multicultural book-based programs for children and parents. Books, craft materials, and snacks will be distributed to the participants and appropriate social distancing precautions will be observed.
This week we feature special guest speaker Dr. Jose Lalas, an educator and an immigrant from the Philippines will read and discuss “Ugly Vegetables” by Grace Lin. This book’s themes show the importance of culture and acceptance, reinforcing the idea that although something may be different, it is just as or even more important than any other. Dr Lalas will talk about the importance of multiculturalism and sing songs with his guitar. Participants will be planting a herb garden at the library as well as planting herb seeds in pots to take home and make seed labels.
