Ludwig Bemelmann’s Madeline is one of literature’s most beloved characters. Join our story time reader Mariel Escalante and Word Up volunteers Marisol Cruz and Jennifer Ortiz in reading her stories and creating Madeline-inspired costumes! Attendees can show off their Madeline style with a mini-parade to the Highbridge Park Adventure Playground and back (one block from Word Up, weather permitting). Madeline books will be available for sale, and a healthy breakfast will be serve.
This event is taking place thanks to monetary support from CHALK, a program of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Ambulatory Care Network.
