Kids’ Storytime

Join the Chinese American Museum and Miss Rita from the Los Angeles Public Library’s Chinatown branch for this month’s Kids’ Storytime on Tuesday, May 28th, at 4pm PDT. Miss Rita will be reading A Friend for Eddy by Ann Kim Ha. 

 About the book: 

A Friend for Eddy tells the story of a lonely fish, named Eddy, who yearns to have friends to play with in his fishbowl. One day, Eddy spots not one but two new friends on the other side of the glass. Eddy then decides to take a leap of faith to be closer to his new friends, leading to unexpected adventures and discoveries. This book is suitable for ages 4-8, though we welcome children of all ages with parental supervision. 

About the author: 

Ann Kim Ha is an author-illustrator and architect. A member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), Ann Kim Ha enjoys telling stories through design—whether it be spatially in a built environment or graphically within the pages of the book, itself. She holds a Master of Architecture and is an “around-the-clock” mom to two young kids.  

Kids’ Storytime featuring Asian American Authors is hosted in partnership with the Chinatown Branch Library and virtually held through Zoom. Register now at camla.org/storytime.
