Join us at 11:00 a.m. twice each month for the Birthplace of Country Music Museum’s Virtual Story Time! In each session we will read from one or two children’s books, often including sounds or songs, learning sheets, or other related activities. Virtual Story Time is primarily geared toward children aged 3-6 years old, but may be enjoyed by older children and adults as a fun family activity. Stories have been chosen to relate to the museum’s content, musical heritage, and Appalachian culture. Each Virtual Story Time will “premiere” on Museum from Home and on the museum’s social media pages.
Reading aloud is a major factor in advancing early literacy skills in young children, helps in ongoing language development, and opens up children’s imagination.
Friday, May 7 our selection will be Georgia Music, written by Helen V. Griffith and illustrated by James Stevenson.
A young girl finds a way to make her sick grandfather laugh again by bringing back the Georgia music they had shared the summer before.
“Luminous watercolors.” ~ Kirkus Reviews.
“A sensitive portrayal of the vital connection between young and old.” ~ Booklist.
