Artists and educators engage children with dramatic renderings of books through
the Creating Readers Saturdays at 2 program.
The goal is to link literacy
to hands-on activities, to read a book that children connect to a real-life
event in which they are players, a book that deepens that experience for children,
a book that they can carry with them, a book that they are invested in reading
because it evokes memories of a place where they are empowered and engaged learner.
Each week, a book will
be chosen which integrates reading with the museum's exhibits.
Saturdays at 2 is funded in part by the NewAlliance
