Children’s Museum Houston

Interactive Story Time

Thursday, Jun. 11, 2015 – Wednesday, Jun. 24, 2015

Big muscles aren’t everything to Dex the Super Pup! Kids can see how his muscles and a kind, caring heart led to him being one mighty little super dog, as the group reads Dex: The Heart of a Hero by Caralyn Buehner in the Parent Resource Libary.

Children will participate in this interactive story time by checking off items from an oversized checklist to see how much they can into the "car", as part of the Summer of Epic Adventure: Forces Unite!

About the Programs & Activities

Story times occur every day at 11 am and 1 and  3 pm, as well as at 5:15, 6 and 7 pm every Thursday during Free Family Night.
