One World (online!)

It’s time for the Mary Baker Eddy Library’s 15th annual One World program—a series of free art and cultural events targeted for children ages 4–12.

This year’s program is designed for everyone to explore online— from homes, summer camp, or any place there’s a computer screen!

This is an exciting online program series happens weekly over six Tuesday mornings. Together we’ll learn about a different corner of the globe, with cultural activities from Italy, Mali, Peru, Lebanon, Haiti, and Wampanoag Nation. Events include live performances, sing-alongs, arts and crafts, and storytimes.

Schedule:

Program Introduction: Big Blue Earth Sing-a-long
Tune in weekly at 10:00 a.m. EDT to help open each program by participating in an interactive sing-a-long of Big Blue Earth, a children’s song which is usually featured in the Mapparium Exhibit. Did you know that Big Blue Earth originally inspired the One World Program? The title “One World” comes from the line in the song, “I see you, you see me, all one world, one family.” Big Blue Earth teaches us about peace and how to care for our global family.
