Kids will enjoy listening to a story related to art and culture of the region, investigating artworks, and exploring the museum using a gallery hunt. Registration required as each child will leave with a take-and-create bag.
Saturday, March 18 | 10:30 – 11:00 AM
- Recommended for ages 5-9, but all are welcome!
- 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.
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.
Featured Book: Rechenka’s Eggs by Patricia Polacco
Old Babushka, known throughout all of Moskva for her beautifully painted eggs, is preparing her eggs for the Easter Festival when she takes in an injured goose. She names the goose Rechenka, and they live happily together until one day when Rechenka accidentally overturns a basket, breaking all of Babushka’s lovingly crafted eggs.
But the next morning Babushka has a surprise awaiting her in the basket. She cries: “A miracle!” It is one of many in this charmingly told tale of friendship and caring.
With vibrant illustrations, Patricia Polacco has joyously re-created the flavor of Old Moscow and its festivals. The eggs, stunningly colored and intricately designed, are authentic reproductions of eggs painted in the Ukrainian style. Rechenka’s Eggs is a timeless story of classic beauty.
