The New York Times has partnered with children’s libraries from the three public library systems of New York City — Brooklyn Public Library, The New York Public Library and Queens Library — to establish the list of Favorite Read-Aloud Stories. Celebrities from film, TV, community and Broadway will read from the 20 books on the list live at the Great Children’s Read! Please click here to see the full schedule.
Featured entertainment at the Target Children’s Stage this year will include performances by Justin Roberts & the Not Ready for Naptime Players, Peter Yarrow, Playhouse Disney’s “Choo-Choo Soul,” John Carter Cash, Hip Hop Harry and Yo Gabba Gabba! There also will be a reading and signing by Broadway star and actress Bernadette Peters. Target recognizes the integral role reading plays in shaping a child’s future. Because reading is the foundation for lifelong learning, Target supports early childhood reading through programs and events, like the Target Children’s Stage, that aim to foster a love of reading at an early age.
Come rain or shine on Sunday, October 4th from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Hosted at Columbia University, Broadway & 116th Street. Bring the whole family!
