Welcoming Words: Her Right Foot Story Hour

March 13 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

EST  | Virtual

The Kennedy Institute invites K-3rd grade classes to join us for our virtual story hour program, Welcoming Words. This one-hour program introduces young students to an important American symbol, the Statue of Liberty, and the welcome that she represents to immigrants. Together we will read Her Right Foot by Dave Eggers, a non-fiction children’s book with a powerful message about the Statue of Liberty and her striding right foot. We will discuss how Lady Liberty welcomes diverse neighbors into our American communities and students will then be encouraged to create their own symbols of welcome for new friends.
