Tell Me A StoryApril Vacation Week, Celebration of Children’s Literacy

Stories come alive in celebration of children’s literacy during April School Vacation Week. Explore different types of stories and the many ways they are told through words, pictures, dance, music, puppetry, and more. Hear stories from others and share your own!

Everyday Amazing
Each day enjoy a variety of activities popping up throughout the Museum in celebration of children’s literacy. At various times throughout the week, join read-alouds and Kamishibai Japanese picture stories with Museum staff, participate in arts and science activities such as making flip books and experimenting with zoetropes, visit with costumed characters from beloved children’s stories, investigate literacy resources shared by community organizations, and cuddle up in cozy book nooks for quiet family moments (and practice your reading skills with trained therapy dogs (when available), who are very patient listeners)!
