Little New-Yorkers in May

One Sunday Morning by Yumi Heo
Tuesday, May 21 and Friday, May 24, 3:30 pm

Sundays are for walks in the park, lazy brunches, and museums!  At Little New-Yorkers this week we will read One Sunday Morning to discover what Minho and his father explore on during their day in the park.  After the reading, children will create a puppet of one the things Minho sees while in the park! I wonder what it will be!

The Journey by Francesca Sanna
Tuesday, May 28 and Friday, May 31, 3:30 pm

As we approach Refugee Awareness Month in June, we want to honor the courage, strength and determination of the men, women and especially children who seek safer places to live.  To celebrate these brave people, at Little New-Yorkers we will read The Journey and follow the lives of a mother and her children seeking a peaceful place to live.  After the reading we will create birds that fly and migrate similar to the family in the story.

And Tango Makes Three by Justin Richardson and Peter Parnell and illustrated by Henry Cole

At Little New-Yorkers this week we are celebrating Pride Month!  As we read And Tango Makes Three, we will explore different types of families, including families with two dads.  The book tells the sweet story about the love of two penguins, Roy and Silo, who lived in the Central Park Zoo.  Afterward we will make a baby penguin, just like Roy and Silo’s baby Tango!

Has anyone ever been curious about how the Rainbow Flag was created?  This week at Little New-Yorkers, we’re celebrating Pride Month and reading Sewing The Rainbow to discover the answer to that question!  Following the story, children will craft their own special rainbow flags!

Julian is a Mermaid by Jessica Love

As New York City’s annual Mermaid Parade approaches, we will be celebrating Pride Month during Little New-Yorkers.  We will read Julian Is A Mermaid and welcome Julian to be completely and openly himself!  After reading about Julian at the Mermaid Parade, we will create our own festive mermaid hats!
