MOCAKIDS Storytime at Home: Try, Try, Try Again!



MOCAKIDS Storytime at Home: Try, Try, Try Again!


The phrase Try, Try, Try Again on a pink floral background, with the covers of the two books we’ll read during storytime.


At first if you don’t succeed, try, try, try again. Was there ever a time where you wanted to do something, but it continued not to go your way? Or maybe it was really hard, and you felt like giving up? This week, we meet two friends who are going through exactly this in Mel Fell by Corey R. Tabor and Jabari Tries by Gaia Cornwell. Join us in cheering them on with songs, crafts, and by telling them 加油! (Jiā Yóu) as they try and try again to succeed! If you have pom-poms, whistles, or noise makers, bring them along as we root for our friends.

Thursday, March 10th, at 4pm ET

Please note that this workshop will be recorded via Zoom and available on Facebook Live for 24 hours.

March is Women History Month! It’s a time to celebrate all women and let their incredible stories be known. Together we will be learning about some inspirational women in Think Big, Little One by Vashti Harrison and The Queen of Physics by Teresa Robeson. These women believed that they could change the world, and so they did. Join us in celebrating them and other remarkable women in this week’s MOCAKIDS Storytime. Remember to bring along an object that makes you feel powerful!
