Preschool Playday | Japanese Folklore
Saturday, Nov 12, 2-2:45 p.m.

Theme: Momotaro, Japan’s Peach Boy
In this classic Japanese folktale, Momotaro is the brave, young samurai born from a peach. He journeys to Oni Island to battle the evil ogres who stole his family and neighbor’s food. With the help of a talking dog, a clever monkey, and a courageous pheasant, the young warrior travels with his new sidekicks in their quest to defeat the ogres. Will he be successful? Join us to find out! We will also explore Japan’s culture while reading about Momotaro’s adventures and even try Japanese Kibi Dango (a traditional dumpling made with millet flour, corn starch, soybean flour, brown sugar, and salt).
