Bilingual Sunday Story Time with Planet Han: The Pigeon Wants a Puppy!
Sunday, April 17th, 2016 | 11:30 am

Sunday, April 17, 11:30 am
Free with Museum admission
Ages 3-7

To celebrate our special exhibition, The Art and Whimsy of Mo Willems, we will be reading books starring the Pigeon all month long!

In this Sunday’s book, the Pigeon doesn’t want to drive a bus—he wants a puppy instead! Do you think it’s a good idea for the Pigeon to have a pet? Stop by and listen to this comical New York Pigeon try to convince you to let him have a puppy.

This week, we’ll be joined by our friends from Planet Han for a second reading of the story in Mandarin Chinese along with a quick Chinese vocabulary lesson and hands-on activity.

Support for Sunday Story Time provided by Macy's.
