Recommended for children ages 4 - 7.

Each week New-York Historical Society educators read one to two engaging picture books around a theme. The themes are related to New York City, American history, current holidays, or new exhibitions.

Sometimes we can learn history from the stories our grandparents share! Learn about both the fanciful and factual past from Julie’s grandparents, who immigrated to New York City when they were younger.
