Storyland: A Trip Through Childhood Favorites Features Seven Beloved Children’s Books
Exhibit opens February 2, 2019
Beloved children’s books will come alive as Storyland: A Trip Through Childhood Favorites opens at Midland Centennial Library on Saturday, February 2. Storyland, a new exhibit built by Minnesota Children’s Museum, provides imaginative, book-based experiences for children ages birth - 8 years old, and models early literacy experiences to parents and other adult caregivers. The exhibit will continue through April 18, 2019.
Storyland transforms seven beloved and award-winning picture books – The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter; The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats; Where’s Spot? by Eric Hill; If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Numeroff; Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault; Abuela by Arthur Dorros; and Tuesday by David Wiesner into three-dimensional play and bilingual (English and Spanish) learning Environments. The exhibit will highlight the six pre-reading skills defined by the Public Library Association and Association for Library Service to Children: disposition to read, print awareness, letter knowledge, sound awareness, vocabulary, and narrative skills and comprehension. Children can explore literacy skills and concepts through imaginative, interactive experiences, dramatic play, and library programing.
