An Adventure in Early Literacy!

Step into the pages of beloved children’s books and enter a world of early literacy adventures! Storyland: A Trip Through Childhood Favorites immerses children and adults in favorite picture books, from the gardens of “The Tale of Peter Rabbit” to the urban snowscape of “The Snowy Day” and the tropical island of “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom”. Designed for children from birth through eight years old and adults, Storyland engages visitors in storylines and literacy activities that lead them to discover that it’s never too early to develop a love of reading.

Public Programs (Daily):

Gone Fishing – “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom” encourages children to point out the shapes, names and sounds of letters. Join us for a fun “fishing” activity to help develop your little ones’ literacy!
Leaping Lily Pads – Children will hop around like the frogs in the story “Tuesday,” but only when the music is playing! Join us for this musical chairs game that celebrates the fun and whimsy of this children’s book.
Where’s Spot? – Our very own plush Spot will be hiding in our Globeology exhibit. Take the tour and see if you can find him! (Hint: he will be proudly wearing CU gear.)
Story Time – Listen to storytellers ready from the treasured children’s classics featured in the exhibit.
