Storytime with Serena Minott at WORD JC

03/24/2019 - 11:00am


Join us at WORD Jersey City for a special bonus storytime on Sunday, featuring author Serena Minott. Serena and her daugther Asha Gore will share the real-life story behind their new children's travel book series, The Amazing Adventures of Aya & Pete.


Serena and Asha have lived and traveled extensively around the globe. At just five years old, Asha has visited more than 20 countries and counting! These experiences inspired the authors to create a collection of beautifully illustrated books that tell the stories of a little girl boldly exploring the world and learning a lot about different places and cultures in the process. 

The Amazing Adventures of Aya & Pete tells the story of Aya, who travels the world with her parents and her stuffed sloth, Pete. The books explore themes of travel, cultural awareness, empowerment, and representation.
