Gather ’round with LancasterHistory on Wednesday, July 6, 2022 at 10am for Storytime! Storytime at LancasterHistory takes place among historic buildings, giving children an immersive history experience. A passionate museum educator will read aloud from a book centered on a historical theme, and then lead a craft or activity inspired by the theme. On July 6, we’ll read Gingerbread for Liberty by Mara Rockliff. We’ll then complete a craft or activity based on the day’s theme (craft/activity to be determined).
Book Excerpt: “Christopher Ludwick was a German-born American patriot with a big heart and a talent for baking. When cries of “Revolution!” began, Christopher was determined to help General George Washington and his hungry troops. Not with muskets or cannons, but with gingerbread! Cheerfully told by Mara Rockliff and brought to life by Vincent Kirsch’s inventive cut-paper illustrations, Gingerbread for Liberty is the story of an unsung hero of the Revolutionary War who changed the course of history one loaf at a time.” [HarperCollins Publishers]
This program broadens kids’ historical knowledge, and establishes museum literacy and critical thinking skills.
