Once upon a time, a little round and fat and red lighthouse was built on a sharp point of the shore by the Hudson River. In the daytime, the lighthouse greeted big steamers, canoes, and tug boats as they sailed by. And at nighttime, the lighthouse felt very useful and important as it flashed its bright light warning passing boats of the dangerous rock on the riverbank. But then one day, a great gray bridge was built right over top of the little red lighthouse. The lighthouse did not feel useful or important anymore.

Join us this week at Sunday Story Time to read The Little Red Lighthouse and the Great Gray Bridge by Hildegarde H. Swift and Lynd Ward and find out what happens to the little lighthouse. After we read, we'll spend time in the galleries sketching the New-York Historical Society’s collection of maritime paintings. 

The Little Red Lighthouse and the Great Gray Bridge written by Hildegarde H. Swift and Lynd Ward, 1942.
