Storytime Stampede

May 18 @ 10:30 am - 11:00 am

$12 – $14

Storytime Stampede is designed to foster art awareness, fine motor development, language and literacy, cognitive development and social-emotional growth. Providing an excellent opportunity for families to unplug and practice their social skills, children can also work on language development and listening skills. Listening to stories provides children with a chance to be introduced to new words. As they learn new words their vocabulary will build – all while they’re having fun. Stories and topics for the series include:

  • September 16: Hear Bertie the Buffalo,” by Wendy H. Jones and make bison masks so you can play buffalo at home.
  • October 21: Enjoy The Three Little Javelinas,” by Susan Lowell and make maracas to enjoy the sounds of the West.
  • November 18: Listen to “Shaped by Her Hands: Potter Maria Martinez,” by Anna Harber Freeman and Barbara Gonzales, then make Native American pinch pots to celebrate National Native American Heritage Month. 
  • December 16: Mark the holiday season with “The Gingerbread Cowboy,” by Janet Squires, then craft gingerbread cowboys from paper.
  • January 20: Hear “Fry Bread,” by Kevin Noble Maillard, then make drums to start the new year off on a musical note. 
  • February 17: Learn the story of Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, the groundbreaking Black tap dancer through “Rap a Tap Tap: Here’s Bojangles – Think of That!” and craft rhythm instruments to mark Black History Month. 
  • March 16: Squeeze some learning fun into Spring Break with special programming.
  • April 20: Enjoy a Western-twist on a classic story with “There Was a Coyote Who Swallowed a Flea,” by Jennifer Ward and Steve Gray, followed by coloring and creativity.
