Greenpoint Branch invites Polish children and their parents to meet with Aga Blue, the author of the book entitled "Mom, how far is Poland?"
This is a bilingual book for kids who live away from their homeland. Beautiful illustrations, short comic book dialogues, and everyday situations are used as a starting point in teaching important values such as family and patriotism. Aga will read excerpts from her book and talk about how to write and illustrate books. Children participating in the program will be able to take part in an art competition.
‘Bartek lives abroad and sometimes misses Poland... He doesn't know what kilometers are, but loves to eat pierogies. How far is Poland and can you measure that distance in pierogies? Bartek thinks Poland is far, but his mom says it's actually really close…
Program is performed in Polish.
