Included with Museum Admission

Join us Monday mornings as we curl up with a good story! Some weeks will feature special guest readers from around the community, but every week is an opportunity to dive into a fun and engaging book together as we introduce children to new words and ideas and encourage them to express their thoughts about what they’ve heard. Story Time will meet in Creation Station on weeks we welcome special guests WHTJ PBS Kids or Felt Board Storyteller Carole Gajdosik.

Saturday Story Time: For 2017, the Museum is offering a special Saturday Story Time once a month, which will meet at 11:00 a.m. and feature guest readers from the Junior League of Charlottesville.

30 Million Word Gap: Some kids have heard as many as 30 million fewer words than others by age 3, which has consequences for their vocabulary and for general social and cognitive developmental outcomes. Reading to children daily and discussing new words helps eliminate this gap. Learn More
