Help little learners build early literacy skills.

Join us for an extra special Story Time at the Town Hall Stage. We read a different book each month to learn about new characters, activities and events during this fun page-turning time. This month will be featuring:

  • Grumpy Monkey by Suzanne Lang
  • Once Upon a Book by Grace Lin and Kate Messner
  • Tiny T. Rex and the Impossible Hug by Jonathan Stutzman
  • Three Billy Goats Fluff by Rachel Mortimer

And afterward, get excited for more fun activities based on the weekly themes below:

March 5-10: Grumpy Monkey: Suzanne Lang's "Grumpy Monkey" is a story about "grumpy" Jim Panzee, his visual markers for his emotions, and learning that it's okay to feel your feelings. Listen to the story, then take a mood walk with us and act out how you think!

March 12-17: Once Upon a Book: "Once Upon a Book" by Grace Lin and Kate Messner shows that a book can take you to many places without moving an inch! Create a paper doll to see yourself in your favorite stories because you belong anywhere you want to be.

March 19-24: Tiny T. Rex and the Impossible Hug: Tiny T. Rex wants to help his friend Pointy feel better, but how can he hug him with his tiny arms? Learn how he solves his problem in "Tiny T. Rex and the Impossible Hug" by Jonathan Stutzman at Storytime. Hop in his shoes, try your hand at the "Operation: Hug Pointy" STEAM challenge, and use engineering skills to create "arms" long enough to hug Pointy in I Can Create.

March 26-31: Three Billy Goats Fluff: In Rachel Mortimer's Three Billy Goats Fluff, Mr. Troll lives under a bridge, and the three Billy Goats Fluff loudly "trip-trap" over it every day while he tries to sleep! Help him get to sleep by decorating a square to add to our community quilt in I Can Create, just like Mother Goat.
