To generate interest in Storyland: A Trip Through Childhood Favorites, fabulous early literacy experience now open at the Blowing Rock Art & History Museum (BRAHM), the Watauga County Public Library has created a Hide and Seek game based on Eric Hill's beloved dog, Spot. The game is hosted by Blowing Rock Parks and Rec on their Memorial Park playground at 1036 Main Street, Blowing Rock. The library brochure holder with instructions for the game will be located next to the equipment rental hut near the playground beginning October 29th, and will be available until the end of December.
Once you have completed your game worksheet by writing down the letters to reveal a secret message, take it to BRAHM at 159 Ginny Stevens Lane, for a small prize -- and enjoy the Storyland exhibit while you are there! You can also enter your name for a drawing of copies of the Storyland book titles, or a free annual Family Membership to BRAHM.
The Blowing Rock Art and History Museum is hosting a traveling exhibit through January 2022, entitled Storyland: A Trip Through Childhood Favorites. Storyland is an immersive, bilingual, adventure through three beloved children’s picture books: The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter, The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats, and Where’s Spot? by Eric Hill. Picture book illustrations are transformed into three-dimensional play and learning environments highlighting the six major literacy development areas: print motivation, print awareness, letter knowledge, sound awareness, vocabulary, and narrative skills and comprehension. https://www.blowingrockmuseum.org/see/storyland
