About the Program

Join us for interactive Story Time in the outdoor Ziegler Amphitheater to hear flood tales from around the world. Through vibrant storytelling and participatory elements like movement and call-and-response, your little ones’ imaginations will run wild as they become part of the story.

Stories include “The Tree of Life,” inspired by South American folklore of the Chorote people; “Yu the Great,” inspired by Chinese folklore; “Muskrat and the Mud,” inspired by Native American folklore of the Lenape tribe; and “The Girl and the Water Pot,” inspired by Central African folklore of the Kwaya people.
