Storyland: A Trip Through Childhood Favorites™
January 15, 2022- May 30, 2022
This exhibit provides imaginative, book-based experiences for children ages birth - 8 years old. Storyland transforms seven beloved books – The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter; The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats; Where’s Spot? by Eric Hill; If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Numeroff; Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault; Abuela by Arthur Dorros; and Tuesday by David Wiesner into three-dimensional play and bi-lingual learning environments.
The Tale of Peter Rabbit +
Children explore Peter Rabbit’s world as they build vocabulary and narrative skills while searching for Peter’s lost belongings, harvesting vegetables, and playing in Peter’s burrow.
The Snowy Day +
The Snowy Day welcomes visitors to Peter’s wintry world. In addition to dramatic play activities, children have opportunities to build print and sound awareness, as they build a snowperson, and explore wintry sounds and words.
Where’s Spot? +
Babies and young toddlers will explore sounds and images through busy wall interactives, highlighting for adults how literacy development begins at birth.
Drawing Cam +
A digital Drawing Cam will capture the paper image and visitors can add it to an electronic gallery of other postcards for visitors to see, and email it home as a souvenir of their experience.
