The Little Pineapple @ NYC Chinatown Scavenger Hunt

We are excited to launch our second book, The Little Pineapple (小菠萝)! Like The Little Tomato, it is a rhyming bilingual children’s book written in English, Chinese and Pinyin.

To celebrate its launch, we are hosting a Chinatown scavenger hunt. Throughout July, participants who visit the small businesses below and figure out the 5 letter word can receive a small prize at Yu and Me Books. (If you cannot find the letter, just take a photo of yourself at the small business and show the photo instead!)

These small businesses were highlighted because they all offer pineapple snacks or desserts. Support them when you visit by grabbing something tasty!

Note: They all have varying hours of operation, so we recommend going on the weekend between the hours of 11 - 6, or on a non-Monday weekday during those hours.
