Children’s Book Week
April 30 @ 12:00 pm - May 6 @ 9:00 pm
Children’s Book Week is the annual celebration of books for young people and the joy of reading. Established in 1919, Children’s Book Week is the longest-running national literacy initiative in the country. Every year, events are held nationwide at schools, libraries, bookstores, homes — wherever young readers and books connect! Pre-school kids, come on in at 11AM, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, for a special story time. Friday, May 4, 4 PM, author Nicole Serra-Gonzalez will read from her book, Sleepy in the Savanna. (Mama Giraffe goes to tuck in her calves and learns just how much they all need her, even the older ones. After she finally gets them all settled, Papa Giraffe comes home and wakes everyone up. What will Mama Giraffe do?) Sat. May 5, 3PM, Kids who like to read are invited to come in and read to younger kids for a special story time. You’re older now and have an opportunity to inspire the love of reading to the younger set by sharing books that you enjoyed you’re your early childhood. Let us know you’re interested by calling 516-764-6000 and celebrate Children’s Book Week with us!
