On the occasion of Tax
On the occasion of Tax Weekend we will read One Proud Penny, by Randy Siegel, and follow the incredible adventures of this copper as he travels everywhere.
We’ll also read Lemonade in Winter, by author Emily Jenkins and illustrator G. Brian Karas, about a brother and sister, who set up a stand to sell lemonade, limeade, and lemon-limeade one cold, wintry day.
There will be coin collecting books and piggy banks and items from the Federal Reserve Bank branch here in Dallas, and we’ll open a conversation to give the kids a rudimentary idea about taxes as sharing.
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.
