School Age Storytime: The Statue of Liberty

Celebrating 125th Anniversary Of Statue of Liberty (2011)
Liberty Rising – Shea or Naming Liberty – Yolen or Lady Liberty – Rappaport (all a bit long)
Emma’s Poem – Glaser (wonderful introduction to author of “Bring me your tired” and idea of Liberty welcoming immigrants)
Liberty’s Journey – Di Pucchio -- Kdg only
Book/Song: This Land is Your Land –782.42 Guthrie
Pop-Up Book/Song: America the Beautiful

Booktalk (some classes): A Picnic in October – Bunting
Might try the poetic: Looking at Liberty -- Stevenson
Hope and Tears – Swain (gr.3+)– letters monologues etc. would make great reader’s theater!

Reading Rainbow: Sea to Shining Sea -- shows restoration of Statue of Liberty

New books 2022: Light for All - Margarita Engle, The Welcome Chair - Rosemary Wells (long but wonderful story of a chair that welcomes 7 generations of new Americans)
