Do you have a passion for reading? Do you want to meet the authors? Asia Society Hong Kong Center and Kids4Kids are now bringing you Young Adventurers’ Book Club, a children friendly program that welcome children and parents. Once a month, a children’s book author and a student ambassador will share a book with you. Everyone is welcome to engage with interesting discussion questions, and more!
Let’s explore the magical world of reading!
When Zack returns home to a sleepy town in the heart of Africa, he thinks he is in for a dreary summer holiday. With two lazy sisters and a bunch of bullies in the town, there is not much hope for him. It all changes when he forms a friendship with Kante, his new ‘rafiki’.
The Boat Race is a story of friendship, mystical creatures and the magic of a million stars of love and kindness. Above all, a story of Africa.
This month of Young Adventurers’ Book Club, we will travel to Africa with writer Anjali Mittal, to see the wildebeest migration and the wild animals in Africa, and meet the Maasai tribes!
