TMORA’s Saturday Picture-Book Clubhouse

On the third Saturday of each month, join the 6-8 year-olds in your life on a fun-filled journey exploring the art, culture, and stories of Russia and its people found in a different picture-book every month. Every child will receive a copy of the featured book for you to read together at home!

Featured book for February:

Through the Window: Views of Marc Chagall’s Life and Art by Barbara Rosenstock, illustrated by Mary GrandPre’

Leah Luzhansky will bring the books alive as she explains their Russian elements and presents related hands-on activities. Leah is an avid reader and she has taught at Concordia Language Villages and the Russian Educational Center of Minnesota.

Having children reading at grade level by the end of third grade is a community initiative to guarantee future academic success, and The Museum of Russian Art is proud to be a part this literacy effort with its Saturday Picture-Book Clubhouse.

Pre-registration is required. Space is limited.

MORE ABOUT FEBRUARY’S FEATURED BOOK:

Known for both his paintings and stained-glass windows, Marc Chagall rose from humble beginnings to become one of the world’s most renowned artists. Admired for his use of color and the powerful emotion in his work, Chagall led a career that spanned decades and continents, and he never stopped growing. This lyrical narrative shows readers, through many different windows, the pre-WWI childhood and wartime experiences that shaped Chagall’s path.

From the same team behind the Caldecott Honor Book The Noisy Paint Box, which was about the artist Kandinksy, Through the Window is a stunning book that, through Chagall’s life and work, demonstrates how art has the power to be revolutionary.
