Little New-Yorkers in Novemer and December

November 4 and 7: My Taxi Ride by Paul Dubois Jacobs and Jennifer Swender. There are many ways to travel around the city, but this week we’re celebrating the one and only yellow taxi in this fast paced rhyming book. Children will then make a flying taxi.

November 11 and 14: Louie by Ezra Jack Keats. Susie and Roberto are two friends who decide to put on a play, but they didn’t realize that it would change one little boy’s life. Children will then make finger puppets.

November 18 and 21: Snow White in New York by Fiona French. This week we’re reading a reimagined old classic, this time transported to the streets of New York in the roaring 20s. Children will then make a NYC princess crown.

November 25 and 28: Madlenka by Peter Sis. Little Madlenka is really excited that she has lost her tooth, she runs around the block and the world to tell all her friends and neighbours about it. Children will then make a magic world accordion book.

December 2 and 5: Chugga-Chugga Choo-Choo by Kevin Lewis. We’re joining the N-YHS’s Holiday Express: Toys and Trains from the Jerni Collections this month, starting with this lovely colourful rhyming book about a special freight train. Children will then make their own paper freight train.

December 9 and 12: Rush Hour by Christine Loomis. This week we’re exploring the different ways that people travel around the city, from historical modes of transport to modern day wonders. Children will then make their own paper boat.

December 16 and 19: 12 Days of New York by Tonya Bolden
This week we’re getting into the festive spirit with this twist on an old classic. We’ll count down the wonders of New York while travelling through the city in various types of transport. Children will then make little clothes-peg airplanes.

December 23: My Taxi Ride by Paul Dubois Jacobs and Jennifer Swender. There are many ways to travel around the city, but this week we’re celebrating the one and only yellow taxi in this fast paced rhyming book. Children will then make a flying taxi.
