Last week, Penguin Kids and the Outdoors Alliance for Kids (OAK) hosted a storytime book reading and conversation with Ambreen Tariq, author of a new children’s book, Fatima’s Great Outdoors! The discussion and Q&A, moderated by OAK Co-Chair and Founder Jackie Ostfeld, focused on getting more kids out in nature, as well as the importance of making the outdoors a place where everyone can see themselves.

Fatima’s Great Outdoors is the story of “an immigrant family embarking on their first camping trip in the Midwest.” Ambreen is also the founder of Brown People Camping, a social media initiative focused on personal narratives and storytelling to promote greater diversity and representation on our public lands and in nature.

In case you missed it, be sure to check out the recording of this fun storytime live event, featuring OAK’s Jackie Ostfeld moderating a live Q&A with the author, Ambreen Tariq.
