Between the Pages: 100 Years of New York Life through Children’s Literature 

90 min program for Grades K-5 

From classics like Eloise and Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile to more recent stories like Chinatown and Gowanus Dogs, children’s picture books take us on an imaginative journey to explore lives both similar to and different from our own. On this field trip, students will experience the ultimate story time as they listen to excerpts from stories set in New York City and hear an interview with William Low, author of Chinatown, as he shares about his upbringing and relationship to his father’s Bronx laundromat. Students will join in on the fun of storytelling by producing a miniature storybook capturing their own New York City stories. This program is part of the Museum’s 100th anniversary year and focuses on social and emotional learning as we explore the city we call home.
