Story Time in the Gallery

Saturday, March 19, 2022 from 9:30 am - 11:00 am


Every child should be surrounded by a loving family and have their interests in art, music, museums, and the places that are important to them in their lives.  I See the Sun in Russia shows the commonality that children in America have with the children in Russia.

Every third Saturday of the month, TMORA hosts a free story time for families and kids in the spacious Main Gallery of the Museum. Enjoy investigating art together, listening to a story related to Russian art and culture, and exploring the Museum using a Seek and Find gallery hunt. Each family that is registered for story time will take one copy of the book home with them for free! There are two identical sessions each Saturday from which to choose:

  1. 9:30-10:00 AM
  2. 10:30 – 11:00 AM
  • Recommended for ages 7-9, 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.
  • Face masks are required.

This month’s featured book:

I See the Sun in Russia by Dedie King

Through the eyes of a child, I See the Sun in Russia is the story of a day in the life of Anton, a young boy growing up in St. Petersburg, Russia. Anton loves to play the violin and he and his family hope that one day he will play in an orchestra. On this day his class takes a field trip to the Hermitage Palace, but there’s still time for violin lessons and playing soccer in the hall of his apartment building before supper. A country overview and glossary is included for parents and teachers who want to go beyond the story and talk more about Russia and why it is important. This is the fourth book in the I See the Sun series.

This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, grant number ARPML-250492-OMLS-22.
