Storytime: We Laugh Alike / Juntos nos reímos

Wed, Nov 10, 2021 from 9:30 am - 10:00 am PST

Free

A story that’s part Spanish, part English, and a whole lot of fun!

Six kids are ready to play: three speak English. Y tres hablan español [and three speak Spanish]. But all of them laugh alike and together! This clever playground adventure weaves together bilingual Spanish and English conversations, so two groups of children can express similar thoughts in their own languages.

Join author Carmen T. Bernier-Grand and Multnomah County Library youth librarian Natasha Forrester Campbell for this fun-filled virtual storytime. Free to attend! Register online to receive access information at multcolib.org.
