Sesame Street Comes to the Library!
Come celebrate with Sesame Street on the launch of their new early literacy initiative, Every Day is a Reading and Writing Day! This multimedia, bilingual (English/Spanish) program was created to help parents, caregivers, and volunteers support children’s early literacy development. Join the NYPL and Sesame Street for a special, interactive performance with Sesame Street’s Grover and Alan who will encourage children to sing, dance, and have fun with language. They will also share tips and ideas for everyday ways parents can help their children develop a love for reading and writing starting at an young age.
To highlight the importance of rich conversations, everyone will also be invited to participate in a fun game of "I-Spy" where children will look around for objects and think of words to describe what they've found. The fun will continue with hand-on activities as they make their own books. Volunteers will also be on hand to read Sesame Street stories aloud to children.
For children ages 3 to 5 years old with parent/caregiver.
