Story Sunday What We'll Build

Story Sunday: What We’ll Build: Plans for Our Together Future


Tune in to story time with Alyssa Velazquez, the curator of Locally Sourced, as she reads What We'll Build: Plans for Our Together Future by Oliver Jeffers. Using special tools, a father and daughter start laying a foundation for their life together.

“What shall we build, you and I?
Let's gather all our tools for a start.
For putting together . . .
and taking apart.”

Be inspired to build your own future filled with imagination and love.

The story will be followed by an art-making activity for children ages 12 and under. Zoom links will be sent via email upon registration, followed by a list of materials needed for the activity.

This reading is made possible with the permission of Philomel Books.

For this Story Sunday we will be making a photo frame!
You will need:

  • Cardboard: (think cereal box, or even sturdier). One or two per person.
  • Photos: any size you like
  • A pen or pencil to mark size
  • A ruler to measure (shareable)
  • Scissors and/or craft knife with possibly a cutting mat to cut cardboard (shareable)
  • A glue gun (only if you have one, if not no worries!)
