To commemorate the centennial of women’s suffrage in Ohio, award-winning journalist Elaine Weiss will tell the nail-biting climax of one of the greatest political battles in American history: the ratification of the constitutional amendment that granted women the right to vote. NPR called her book, The Woman’s Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote, “stirring, definitive, and engrossing…Weiss brings a lucid, lively, journalistic tone to the story…The Woman’s Hour is compulsory reading.”
Story Time develops important pre-literacy skills including vocabulary, print awareness, narrative skills, print motivation, phonological awareness, and letter knowledge. Our programs combine these tools with the Five Simple Practices recommended by the Every Child Ready to Read Organization: talking, reading, singing, writing, and playing.
Our Winter Story Time session runs from January 14 to March 9 and the Spring Story Time session runs from March 18 to May 11.
