The Girl Who Lost Her Smile with Sari Mira

Join our resident storyteller Sari Mira for another exciting English-Arabic Storytime from the comfort of your home! Children ages 2-6 and their parents are invited to join Sari who will read The Girl Who Lost Her Smile by Karim Alrawi, teaching a few Arabic words and phrases along the way.

In this folktale about uncovering life’s hidden beauty, Jehan wakes one morning and sees that her smile is lost and tries everything to get it back.

The storytime video will go up at 1 p.m. EDT on Monday, June 15 on our Storytime page, where you can also check out previous Online Storytimes


Due to the pandemic, we have been closed to the public since March 13. Closed doors mean that our earned revenue streams have dried up, and corporate funds have been pivoted to assist with COVID-19 relief or for their own financial survival. We are looking forward to the day we can safely reopen, but until then, we need your support.

Your donation today will help us weather this crisis.
