Bedtime with Befana!

Part III: La Befana Comes to NYC!

Last night we learned the classic tale of La Befana in Italy with Kate’s modern (culinary) twist!

Tonight you’ll find out how what happens when literature comes to life as La Befana leaves her village in Italy for the first time in 2000 years only to land in NYC  in the middle of a global pandemic. Learn how she find the courage to do what she can in a time of crisis and lights of her corner of the world with her gift of baking!

Sweet dreams!  We’ll see you tomorrow night!
