Storytime [July 13, 2023]

Gather ’round on Thursday, July 13, 2023 at 10am for Storytime! Storytime at LancasterHistory takes place among historic buildings, giving children an immersive history experience. A passionate museum educator or volunteer will read aloud from a book centered on a historical theme, and then lead a craft or activity inspired by the theme. On July 13, join us as we read Grandma Lisa’s Humming, Buzzing, Chirping Garden by Lisa Doseff and illustrated by Duncan Robertson. We’ll then complete a craft or activity based on the day’s theme (craft/activity to be determined).

Book cover for "Grandma Lisa's Humming, Buzzing, Chirping Garden" by Lisa Doseff.Book Description: “Join Grandma Lisa as she enlists the enthusiastic help of her grandchildren in transforming her yard into an attractive garden for wildlife. Along the way she explains why planting native species is so important and allays the children’s fear of insects by lovingly showing them how these critters are so essential to our world. The family revels in working together, adding plants and other elements to the garden necessary to support a variety of wildlife. As the yard begins to teem with animals, the children are simply enthralled and delighted by the sights, sounds, and mere presence of nature found in Grandma Lisa’s garden!” [Pollination Press]
