Upcoming: Children's Sunday
We got an email from Heart of Brooklyn about Children's Corner, which is described as "a kid-centric sanctuary in Prospect Park that includes Lefferts Historic House, the Prospect Park Carousel and Prospect Park Zoo" and includes the Brooklyn Public Library’s Kidsmobile. They'll be hosting "Kids’ Sundays!" from 1-4pm on the first Sunday of every month. The first event is Sunday, March 2. Here's a bit more from the email:
Brooklyn families can enjoy readings, history-themed arts & crafts, storytelling, Zookeeper chats and more! The series kicks-off March 2, 2008 as the Children’s Corner participates in nation-wide Leap Day celebrations. Zoo-goers of all ages can jump into the fun by participating in a variety of amphibian activities, including a scavenger hunt, frog-focused crafts and Zookeeper chats about poison-dart and smoky jungle frogs.The Sundays are March 2, April 6, May 4 and June 1. For more information, click here.
After all that amphibian action, kids can hop onto the Brooklyn Public Library’s Kidsmobile, a children’s library on wheels, inside the Park by the Children’s Corner, to check out books about frogs, salamanders and other awesome amphibians, hear stories, and sign up for library cards!
And, they can leap back in time to the 18th century at Prospect Park’s Lefferts Historic House for Early American Crafts, or over to Prospect Park’s Audubon Center to celebrate Read Across America Day (from 12-2pm) with readings from Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax and other great children’s books.
