For the annual Earth Day
For the annual Earth Day celebration, we will read the ultimate vintage recycling tale: Christina Katerina and the Box, by Patricia Lee Gauch and illustrated by Doris Burn, who lived on an idyllic island making pictures by candlelight, living like every day was Earth Day.
Next, we will hear Shel Silverstein’s classic trash talk, Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout Would Not Take the Garbage Out, or what happens when you don’t take care of your garbage, and finish, of course, with the timely tale of The Lorax, by Dr. Seuss.
Lanie DeLay has worked at Dallas Contemporary, the Dallas Public Library, Hamon Arts Library at SMU, at area preschools and the School For The Blind in Austin. She has written for Glasstire and Art&Seek, and she tutors children in early reading skills at Dealey Montessori. When she isn’t looking at art or reading with kids, she’s reading about art or looking for a new read.
It’ll be a 45 minute read followed by a short discussion with the kids–that’s going to be interesting, we can’t wait to see what they come up with.
All ages are welcome.
On Sunday morning bring your kids and infuse them with a love for reading.
