Today is the 21st anniversary of September 11, 2001: a day when people around New York City sprung into action to help those in need and in danger. Some of those brave people were the crew of the John J. Harvey fireboat. In author-illustrator Maira Kalman’s Fireboat, we’ll learn all about the heroic Harvey, starting back in 1931 and stretching all the way to today. After the story, we’ll make our own fireboats, just like the Harvey!
Please note that this is not a drop-off program—child participants must be accompanied by an adult.
