Tar Beach Storytime & Craft


Join Team GCM member, Essence, in a storytime with one of her favorite children’s books, Tar Beach, written and illustrated by Faith Ringold. Tar Beach’s illustrations feature Ringold’s original medium of story quilts, which finds its roots in African American heritage. Create your own story quilt using the coloring sheet below after reading the story with Essence.
