Little New-Yorkers in April

April 3: When Everyone Wore a Hat by William Steig

This week is all about hats! We’ll travel back in time to see how one little boy remembers the era when everyone wore hats. Kids will then make their own fancy hats to wear home.

April 7 and 10:

It’s a Book by Lane Smith 

This week we’re going back to basics. Telephones and laptops are being put down and replaced by the humble book. Children will then create a tech inspired notebook.

April 14 and 17:

Blackout by John Rocco

This week we explore what happens in a tech-crazy world, when the lights suddenly went out! We’ll follow one family as they learn to go without. Children will then make tech-inspired paper lanterns.

April 24:

The Earth Book by Todd Parr

This week we’re celebrating Earth Day with a book that will give us lots of handy tips to be nicer to the planet. We’ll make little paper backpacks, which are recyclable! 

April 28 and May 1:

Cat’s Night Out by Caroline Stutson

Kids will immerse themselves in the magical side of city nightlife. Through the book’s counting, rhyming, and its feline characters, we’ll find out what happens on the city’s rooftops. Kids will then make 3D standing cats.
