Come and listen to a bilingual story in Mandarin and English!
Bring your children to East Asian Bilingual Storytime and enjoy a storybook telling of “Kon and Pon” by Masako Matsuno. This friendship story tells of Kon, a fox, and Pon, a raccoon dog, who live on different sides of a mountain river. Their families have never gotten along, but Kon and Pon’s friendship changes everything.
A small fox and raccoon-dog (tanuki) meet. However, their families forbid them from becoming friends. How will they act? Are they going to overcome this obstacle? This warm-hearted story of friendship shows us how a raccoon-dog and a fox make friends with each other despite of their differences. This story is split into two parts. Please enjoy part 1 of this showcase of friendship.

一只小狐狸和小狸猫相遇了。但是,他们的家人禁止他们做朋友。他们会怎么做呢?他们能不能跨越这个障碍呢? 这个关于友谊的温暖故事展现了一只小狐狸和小狸猫是怎么跨越困难成为朋友的。这个故事分成了两部分。请前来听听这个故事的上部吧。
