Meet chickens and other farm animals at The New Farm as Lucky Diaz of The Lucky Band brings us a picture story about kindness, community and, of course, paletas: Paletero Man. Based on the musical hit by the same name, enjoy a delightful read-aloud by Diaz followed by a concert, book giveaway of Paletero Man and book signing. On the hottest day of the year, you will surely hear the beloved ring-ring-ring of the paletero cart at the playground. What’s your favorite paleta flavor? SFPL and The New Farm partner to bring fun for the whole family. For ages 5 and older.
