Rosie the Reader
Celebrate women's history with the Women's Center's children's story hour. Our first Rosie the Reader will be held March 2, 2013.
The Women's Center invites you to celebrate the centennial anniversary of the March 3, 1913 suffrage parade by bringing your children for an empowering children's hour on Saturday, March 2, 2013, at 1pm in the Women's Center. Our reader will be dressed as Rosie the Riveter, and we encourage those in attendance to dress as their favorite person in women's history. We hope to see suffragists, female athletes, and ally's of women's rights!
We've been collecting books with positive female role models that we will choose from on the day. Our current selection includes:
The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munsch
Mommy, Mama, and Me by Lesléa Newman
Wilma Unlimited: How Wilma Rudolph Became the World's Fastest Woman by Kathleen Krull
Mama Went to Jail for the Vote by Kathleen Karr
The Princess Knight by Cornelia Funke and Kerstin Meyer
