It's Immigrant Heritage Month (every month) at MOCAKIDS Storytime at Home!
JUNE 23, at 4 PM ET
MOCAKIDS Storytime at Home: A Champion, a Fighter, and a Dreamer
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!
