We are hosting a free tot storytime with treasure hunt activity in the Museum gallery on Tuesday July 9, at 3:00pm.
Mindy Dwyer, children's book author/illustrator, will be leading our July 9th storytime. She will read from her new book, Treasure, and kids will go on a treasure hunt throughout the museum afterward.
From her website about the book:
This book is a quiet story of treasure lost and found, and the beautiful developing relationship between a black crow and a curious child.
A crow watches from afar as a child collects a unique assortment of curios in a secret hideout: a thimble, a button, a ribbon. When a storm hits and scatters everything, the child must search for the beloved items again. The crow returns one of the lost items, and in return the child offers something else. Together child and crow discover the best gift of all. Treasure is a lovely tale for beginner readers that teaches simple word concepts with sweet illustrations.
