Little New-Yorkers in September

September 1 and 4

The Adventures of Taxi Dog by Debra Barracca

This week children take a back seat in a New York taxi and experience a day in the life of Maxi. We’ll explore New York sites and even have a “hot dog” together. After the story, children will make their own hot dog craft.

September 8 and 11

The Old Pirate of Central Park by Robert Priest

Arrghh! This week there’s a very silly battle happening in Central Park! After the story, we’ll join the pirate army by making our own pirate ship.

September 15 and 18

El Barrio by Debbi Chocolate

This week a young boy will take us through his barrio, and we’ll celebrate the culture and traditions that make it uniquely his! Then we will make a stained glass window craft to hang at home.

Regards to the Man in the Moon by Ezra Jack Keats

This week we explore just how far our imaginations can take us, with a little help from Louie. Families will make their own galaxy mobile craft to take home!

Rush Hour by Christine Loomis

This week we’re exploring the different ways people travel around the city—from historical modes of transport to modern day wonders. Children will then build and decorate a three-dimensional coach.
