Everyone tells stories. Stories express ideas and emotions. There are lots of ways to tell a story, books, oral storytelling, puppets, music, dance, pictures, and poetry. Everyday enjoy: Read alouds, Kamishibai Japanese picture stories, book nooks throughout the Museum, live plays, arts and science activities such as making flip books, bookmarks, and zoetropes, and literacy resources shared by community organizations including Boston Public Library, READ Boston and Raising a Reader.

We also have a host of costumed characters coming to the Museum! Come and meet some of your favorites like Curious George and Alice in Wonderland! Even Waldo will be at the Museum! Can you find him? If so he will have a prize for you!
