April English-Arabic Storytime with Mayor Abdullah H. Hammoud

11 a.m. – 12 p.m. ET Saturday, April 29, 2023
April English-Arabic Storytime: Arab Arab All Year Long! w/ Mayor Abdullah H. Hammoud

In-person at AANM

Celebrate Arab American Heritage Month with your family at AANM! Our featured storyteller, Mayor Abdullah H. Hammoud, will be joining us for English-Arabic Storytime. Children ages 2-6 and their parents are invited to join as Mayor Hammoud reads “Arab Arab All Year Long!” written by Cathy Camper and illustrated by Sawsan Chalabi.

Yallah! From January to December, join some busy kids as they partake in traditions old and new. There’s so much to do, whether it’s learning to write Arabic or looking at hijab fashion sites while planning costumes for a local comic convention. With details as vivid as the scent of jasmine and honeysuckle perfume (made to remind Mom of Morocco), children bond with friends, honor tradition, and spend loving time with family. Accompanied by buoyant and charming illustrations, this portrait of Arab life and childhood zeal is sure to bring joy all year round.
