Read a book and escape from reality! Let your imagination run wild!

Reading is a part of our daily lives! Whether it’s a road sign, an e-mail, or a good book that whisks you away into a far off land, reading is important for kids and their development. We are showing our love for literacy with this WonderWeek. Practice your literacy around the Museum and dive into an all-new set of activities.
