It’s Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, Little New-Yorkers! Sometimes it can be hard to talk to someone who does not speak the same language that you do. In Drawn Together, written by Minh Lê and illustrated by Dan Santat, a little boy and his grandfather have a difficult time connecting - the boy speaks English and the grandfather speaks Thai. But as the two begin to draw together, they discover that they share a love of storytelling and art! After the book, create your own artwork using two different styles, just like the boy and his grandfather!
Please note that this is not a drop-off program—child participants must be accompanied by an adult.
