Meets in Creation Station
This Program is Free with Museum Admission
Let’s listen to a story! We’ll dive into a new and engaging book together each week as we introduce children to new words and ideas and encourage them to express their thoughts about what they’ve heard. Special guests include PBS Kids, who visits every first Monday and brings books to listen to and take home, and Carole Gajdosik, who visits every third Monday to tell classic tales with the help of her felt board. Visitors are welcome to come and go as attention spans require.
*We will also have surprise Story Times in the Literacy Lounge during the week, so keep your ears open for announcements about pop-ups.
