Storyland at BRAHM

Storyland: A Trip Through Childhood Favorites is an immersive adventure through three beloved children’s picture books: The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter, The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats, and Where’s Spot? by Eric Hill. From idyllic country gardens to urban snowscapes, this exhibit engages children and adults alike in the joy of literacy. With text presented in English and Spanish, Storyland provides practical tools for cultivating literacy through everyday activities and argues that it is never too early to cultivate a love of reading. Picture book illustrations are transformed into three-dimensional play and learning environments highlighting the six major literacy development areas: print motivation, print awareness, letter knowledge, sound awareness, vocabulary, and narrative skills and comprehension. Children will explore these foundational literacy skills through imaginative, interactive experiences and dramatic play inspired by classic stories.

Storyland, a traveling exhibit created by Minnesota Children’s Museum and sponsored by First Citizens Bank, Tres & Beth Abernathy, Ralph & Elizabeth Patterson, Joel & Bernadette Hackney, and Janis & David Fite will provide imaginative, book-based experiences for children ages 2-8 years old.
