Storytelling
Sunday Story Time @ Home: Because…
Sunday, January 16 at 11:30 am ET

Free; ages 3-6

Join us via Zoom this Sunday 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. Welcome to January Jam! This month we will be reading books all about music!

How does one little girl grow up to become a famous composer of music? Well, because! In Because… author Mo Willems and illustrator Amber Ren tell a vivid story of unexpected musical inspiration and an artist’s journey to center stage. Become a musical maestro yourself by creating your own conductor’s baton after the story!

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.
