Registration required as each child will leave with a take-and-create bag.

Saturday, February 18 | 10:30 – 11:00 AM

  • FREE | Pre-registration for children is required. *Each story time session will be limited to 25 children.
  • Free admission for parents/guardians as well.
  • There is free parking across the street (Diamond Lake Road) in the Mayflower Church parking lot.

Family Tours

There will be a family tour offered right after Story Time in the Gallery guided by a docent and TMORA’s very own special fox friend, Lisa. Lisa is TMORA’s friend and mascot for family programs. She will guide the docent around to her favorite artworks. Docents play the role of moderator – someone to start and keep the conversation going. These tours run 15-20 minutes long. Children can complete a gallery hunt after this tour.

February’s Book: The Mitten by Jan Brett

When Nicki drops his white mitten in the snow, he goes on without realizing that it is missing.

One by one, woodland animals find it and crawl in; first, a curious mole, then a rabbit, a badger and others, each one larger than the last. Finally, a big brown bear is followed in by a tiny brown mouse and what happens next makes for a wonderfully funny climax.

As the story of the animals in the mitten unfolds, the reader can see Nicki’s snowy outing in the borders of each page.

In her distinctive style, Jan Brett brings the animals to life with warmth and humor, and her illustrations are full of visual delights and details faithful to the Ukrainian tradition from which the story comes.
