From books, to poems, menus and even clothes, words are everywhere! We're spreading the word of the importance of reading and showing our love for literacy. Stop by the Parent Resource Library to pick up one of our Reading List picks of the month and practice your literacy skills all around the Museum!



The following activities are all day long, so stop by anytime to participate!

A Bad Case of Stripes
Become Camillia Cream without the drama as you use stripes to draw a colorful, 3-D hand that pops right off the page in Alexander Art Academy

Colorful Bookmarks

Don't wait for someone to write your story. Do it yourself with this mini book made by you in Junktion
