Drawing on her own adventures living in re-created Tudor conditions, Goodman serves as our intrepid guide to sixteenth-century living. Proceeding from daybreak to bedtime, this charming, illustrative work celebrates the ordinary lives of those who labored through the era. From sounding the "hue and cry" to alert a village to danger to malting grain for homemade ale, from the gruesome sport of bear-baiting to cuckolding and cross-dressing the madcap habits and revealing intimacies of life in the time of Shakespeare are vividly rendered.

Bilingual Storytime Series

Early child research shows that bilingual children have an edge in development. Speaking two languages benefits children’s overall learning, marked by larger vocabularies, flexible problem-solving skills, and higher-level cognitive abilities. Bilingual learning also supports a set of mental skills that allow children to thrive academically, regulate emotions, and grow into mentally healthier adults.

Join us as we share books, rhymes and songs that will help foster an appreciation of our wonderful multicultural community and language. Activities presented will be geared to children between the ages of 0-5 years old.

December 14 - Join us for a bilingual storytime presented in French and English. 

December 27 - Join us for a bilingual storytime presented in Spanish and English. 

February 27 - Join us for a bilingual storytime presented in Spanish and English.

April 5 - Join us for a bilingual storytime presented in Italian and English.
