This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

An exciting new I Can Read series by author and illustrator Melissa Iwai! Gigi, a biracial six-year-old girl, learns about her Japanese culture from her grandfather when he comes to visit. Gigi can’t wait for her Ojiji—Japanese for grandpa—to move in. Gigi plans lots of things to do with him like playing tag, reading books, and teaching Roscoe, the family dog, new tricks. But her plans don’t work out quite the way she’d hoped. And her grandpa doesn’t seem to like Roscoe. Will Gigi find a way to connect with her Ojiji? This Level Three I Can Read book is geared for kids who read on their own but still need a little help. The story contains several Japanese words and a glossary of definitions and pronunciations.
