Little New-Yorkers in March and April
March 3 and 6: The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats
We’re beginning March by saying good-bye to these freezing, winter months! We’ll follow one little boy on his snowy adventure and then make paper snowflakes of our own.
March 10 and 13: The Tale of Pale Male by Jeanette Winter
This week, children are encouraged to look up! Pale Male is a very special New Yorker. He is a hawk who lives among the city’s skyscrapers. Children will then make a mini bird’s nest.
March 17 and 20: Snow Rabbit by Il Sung Na
This week we’re welcoming the new season with the symbol of spring: the rabbit. Kids will learn about how animals transition from winter to spring and then make bunny bracelets.
March 24 and 27: A Walk in New York by Salvatore Rubbino
Let’s remind ourselves of the wonderful parts of this amazing city with a little boy and his dad, as they spend the day visiting all the tourist attractions of New York. Children will then make their own pop-up New York City.
March 31 and 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.
