Read along with author Patricia Lakin on this episode of Read Out Loud on Governors Island! In this perfect picture book for summer, follow Sam, Pam, Will and Jill on their adventure to the beach! But will they make it to the beach? Read along to find out!
We taped this episode of Read Out Loud on location during the KidLit TV Children’s Book Weekend on Governors Island at a house built in the late 1800s! The military installation on Governors Island was known collectively as Fort Columbus, and in 1878, officers’ families started to move in, and resources, such as a movie theater, a YMCA, “officer’s club,” public school, and three chapels, were built. This house is located next to the Admirals House in Nolan Park.
