English-Arabic Storytime Online: Where Are You From?

1 p.m. ET Monday, Sept. 27, 2021
Where Are You From?

Join us for an English-Arabic Storytime from the comfort of your home! Children ages 2-6 and their parents are invited to tune in as resident storyteller Sari Mira reads the book, Where Are You From? by Yamile Saied Méndez, in both English and Arabic.

When a girl is asked where she’s from—where she’s really from—none of her answers seems to be the right one. Unsure about how to reply, she turns to her loving Abuelo for help. He doesn’t give her the response she expects. She gets an even better one. With themes of self-acceptance, identity and home, this powerful, lyrical picture book will resonate with readers young and old, from all backgrounds and of all colors—especially anyone who ever felt that they don’t belong.

The Storytime will go up at 1 p.m. EDT on Monday, Sept. 27 on our Storytime page, where you can also check out previous Online Storytimes.

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.
