Welcome to Creative Clubhouse Stories Book Recommendations!

Each week we’re going to share a book as well as an activity to do based on the book!

This week we’re reading Saffron Ice Cream, written and illustrated by Rashin Kheiriyeh.

Saffron Ice Cream

Rashin is ready for her beach adventure in Brooklyn! But she can’t stop thinking about how things were in her old home – Iran. Some of the things she does in Brooklyn are the same as how she did them in Iran and some of them are different.

We also probably do things just like she does in Brooklyn and Iran!

Let’s write a story about it…
