These Five Stories Make for One Great Storytime Event!

Follow along as five children, from five different cultures, and in five different decades, grow up in the same building on the Lower East Side of New York City! Join us and listen as author/artist ELLEN WEINSTEIN reads from her new picture book Five Stories for this storytime event!

In Five Stories, Jenny Epstein and her family arrive on a steamship from Russia in the 1910s. Jenny writes letters in Yiddish to her grandmother, while practicing her English in her new neighborhood. By the 1930s, when Anna Cozzi and her Italian family move into the building, Jenny has become a teacher in Anna’s school! Then José Marte moves in during the 1960s, Maria Torres in the 1980s, and Wei Yei in the Lower East Side of today! This bright picture book illustrates how NYC came to be the terrific melting pot that it is today!
