« All Events

This community book-making project aligns perfectly with our current exhibition: Alphabets, Bedtime Stories, and Cautionary Tales: Children’s Books and the Shaping of American Identity. The choices of illustrations in the historical alphabet books on display in the exhibition offer glimpses of what America was like in the times they were written. In that spirit, each week during this program children in grades 3 and higher will have the chance to illustrate different letters of the alphabet in ways that reflect the time we live in.

While A is typically for apple, you might want to update this for 2023 to A is for Apple Computer to better reflect our times. Any area of interest can be mined: science, history, pop culture, arts, politics, etc. You can color the letter in, and illustrate and/or write what that letter stands for.

To participate in this project: children can pick up letters at the beginning of each week in the library and drop them off in the library by the end of the week. One entry per letter will be chosen to be added to the alphabet book on the wall in the Children’s Library. All participants whose letters are chosen will receive a copy of the final version The ABCs of Your World 2023.
