On Friday we had two fun back-to-back programs presented by Jennifer Huang, who volunteered her time (and lots of fun materials) for Easy Chinese for Kids.
The first session was for children entering preK to 2nd grade. They played games after learning the names of numbers and colors in Chinese.
The second session was for children entering grades 3 through 6. They also learned numbers and colors and played games, too.
If you would like more information about learning Chinese, check out the web site of Jennifer’s school: http://nwcsny.org/
Thank you, Jennifer!

We are very grateful to Ossining residents Nathan, Andrea & Finnigan Jew for donating books to the Ossining Public Library Children’s Room. On April 16th, Finn celebrated his 2nd birthday with a “Milk and Bookies” birthday party. Instead of gifts for Finn, party guests were encouraged to bring brand new books for donation to the library. Some of the books are now part of the Children’s Room collection and some are being given away to other children for Summer Reading Game Prizes.
Finn’s mom, Andrea, said, “The organization we used to help with the event was milkandbookies.org, a non-profit organization that encourages children to give back and share the love of reading, with books for other kids.”
Thank you to Finn and his mom and dad for the generous donation!
