Join us in the museum’s Learning Center for our new monthly Museum Story Time program. Aimed at toddler-age children and their grown-ups, we will gather on the first Friday of each month for a music- or Appalachia-related storybook, a tune or two, and a related activity or coloring sheet.
This month we will be reading The Little Black Truck written by Libba Moore Gray and illustrated by Elizabeth Sayles, read with permission from Simon & Shuster.
A charming tale depicted in luminous pastels recounts the history of a trusty pickup truck left out in the woods after it gets too old to work anymore, until the owner’s grandson restores its original beauty.
