For children of bilingual parents, West Hartford school offers parent read-aloud program
from The Hartford Courant
Mung Thai read aloud in Cantonese as he sat next to his son Nick in Jennifer Burkey's second-grade class Friday morning. The 18 students sitting cross-legged on a patch of carpeting were already aware of the plot to 'Li's Chinese New Year.'They heard it read to them in English the week before, but this time students listened as it was read in Cantonese. The colorful picture book was written in Chinese. The story shares the traditions of the Chinese New Year celebration, from the parade, red envelopes and the animals of the zodiac, which will be celebrated Saturday.
