The Studio Museum in Harlem jump started National Library Week with a Books & Authors, Kids! program on April 14, 2013 with author and illustrator, Ambre Anderson. Anderson read from her book, Qualities and facilitated a fun origami animal art workshop.
Qualities is a colorful and engaging story of a little girl’s journey through the animal kingdom. Ambre Anderson says she created Qualities, “to promote awareness to children about how to find their own confidence." Little Lee, the book's main character, learns about the special abilities of different animals and discovers her own special qualities.

The Studio Museum wrapped up its last in-school residence this month, after a year of meaningful, successful school partnerships. One of the highlights this year was our partnership with Dorothy Day Head Start Center in Harlem through Cool Culture’s Literacy Through Culture program.
