Happy Pride Month! This month, celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and the importance of being ourselves with some of our favorite books.
This week, we will be reading And Tango Makes Three, written by Justin Richardson and Peter Parnell, and illustrated by Henry Cole. This book takes place right here in New York City at the Central Park Zoo where two male penguins, Roy and Silo, adopted a baby penguin egg to create a new family! Celebrate this penguin family with us by making your own baby penguin puppet after the story!
Please note that this is not a drop-off program—child participants must be accompanied by an adult.
