Join us every Friday in person 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’s train themed book is Subway Sparrow by Leyla Torres.

When a sparrow flies into a subway car, three New Yorkers who speak different languages must work together to rescue the little lost bird. After the story, make your own flying sparrow—just make sure it doesn’t get stuck on the subway!

Please note that this is not a drop-off program—child participants must be accompanied by an adult. This program will take place in person. Capacity limits, vaccination proof plus matching ID (for those ages 12 and up), and mask requirements apply. Please find all our safety information here.
