Paperweight Pals

Paperweight Pals, a book for very young readers, presents 10 paperweights from the more than 1,000 examples in the collection of The Corning Museum of Glass. The "pals" inside these weights offer young children an opportunity to explore shapes, colors, and numbers. This book, written by the Museum's executive director, Karol B. Wight, focuses on small creatures immortalized in glass, other pieces in the Museum collection depict people, places, and flowers.
