We’re so thankful for all the families that came to see the i.d.e.a. Museum’s Art of the Story exhibition, which ended on Sunday (June 13).

Keep the storytelling activities going at home this summer to help your little ones build vocabulary, nurture imagination and promote quality together time! Reading is a must.

“Reading and storytelling encourages creative thinking and imagination in children,” said Curator of Education Dena Milliron. “It also promotes vocabulary and language development and provides opportunity for expression, thoughts, feelings and emotions.”
