Join our friends at the Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library for a special storytime on Thursday, December 15 at 6 p.m. We’ll be reading the book The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats as part of Storyland: A Trip Through Childhood Favorites, a special exhibit at the Discovery Center through January 2, 2023.
Storyland immerses children and adults in favorite picture books. In the Snowy Day section of Storyland, children enter to Peter’s wintry world where a young boy explores his neighborhood after a fresh snowfall. Have the opportunity to build print and sound awareness as you build a snowperson, and explore wintry sounds and words. Follow Peter’s footprints through the urban snowscape, manipulate icicles, bells, and chimes; build snow people, and more.
Since this event takes place on free night, there is no admission to attend. Free Family Fun Nights are on the third Thursday of every month from 5 to 8 p.m. Join us to play in over 15,000 square feet of indoor educational exhibits exploring science, careers, art, building and more, a 4.5 acre certified Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom and special space for babies and toddlers to explore.
