CMOM will now be OPEN 7 days a week from 9-5!

Now there will be more hours to fly the airplane, go fishing, read a story, play dress-up, shop in our grocery, climb the skyscraper, see yourself on TV, and much much more! We are so excited, and we hope you are too!

Ezra Jack Keats

If you have joined us recently for Storytime, you have probably heard an Ezra Jack Keats story. Many people are familiar with The Snowy Day, which won a 1963 Caldecott Medal. However, Keats was a prolific children’s book author, and this classic is just one of many great stories from the author. Lately, we’ve read A Letter to Amy, Peter’s Chair, Whistle for Willie, and Pet Show!.

Ezra Jack Keats was born in Brooklyn in 1911, and New York City serves as a backdrop to his stories. The stories feature children from diverse backgrounds who face timeless childhood dilemmas, like how to adjust to a new sibling (the issue at hand in Peter’s Chair.) Check out one of Ezra Jack Keats’ classics soon!
