Word Up Story Time Eldie Makes New Friends Story Time: Nana Akua Goes to School with Patricia Elam

Saturday, April 10, 2021 -- 11am EST

REGISTER

Join us for a special storytime with author Tricia Elam Walker as she shares her book Nana Akua Goes to School, winner of the 2021 Ezra Jack Keats award for writing. This moving story that celebrates cultural diversity is about a shy girl who brings her West African grandmother--whose face bears traditional tribal markings--to meet her classmates. This is a great read for kids who are navigating pandemic schooling either virtually or newly in person!
