Come listen to a bilingual story in Japanese and English!

This month's theme is featuring the story, Suki’s Kimono


Please join us as we follow the story of Suki, a young Japanese American girl who marches to the beat of her own drum! Suki cherishes her heritage, with her favorite things being her blue yukata and any time spent with her obaa-chan (grandmother). She is determined to wear her yukata on the first day of school, but what do her classmates think of it? Come find out!

自分のドラムのビートに合わせて行進する日系アメリカ人の少女、スキの物語を一緒に楽しみませんか。スキは自分が日系アメリカ人であることを誇りに思っています。青い浴衣とおばあちゃんと一緒に過ごす時間が大のお気に入り。登校初日に浴衣を着ようと意気込むスキのことを、クラスメートはどう思っているのでしょうか。さてさてどうなることやら。。。

Co-sponsored by the Center for East Asian and Pacific Studies at the University of Illinois and The Urbana Free Library. You can attend in-person or by watching a live stream of the program on Zoom. Register in advance to receive a link to watch the program online.
