  • Ages: 3–6 years

Free; ages 3-6

Join us via Zoom every Tuesday for story time and crafts! Each class includes a special Little New-Yorkers hello song, silly dances and games, a story book reading, and a craft to do at home. With December comes the New-York Historical Society’s annual Holiday Express exhibition! This week, read Chris Van Allsburg’s classic story, The Polar Express.

On Christmas Eve, a young boy hears a train whistling outside his window. Soon he is aboard the Polar Express and off on an adventure to the North Pole. After the story, take your own winter journey by designing your own Polar Express and train tracks!
