Toddlers and their grown-ups are invited to take part in Museum Story Time at 10:30 a.m. ET every first Friday of the month in the Learning Center at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum. WBCM Radio Bristol show host Ella Patrick – a.k.a. musician Momma Molasses – will also be on hand to lead everyone in song. The event is free and open to the public.
“We love hosting young children at the museum and seeing them engaged and excited about being here,” said Dr. Rene Rodgers, head curator at the museum. “Our new Museum Story Time program gives us the chance to share the joy of music and stories and is just one more way we can provide meaningful and fun programming to our community.”
Books selected for Museum Story Time focus on themes related to music or the culture of our Appalachian region. The March 3 Museum Story Time will feature the book Cowboy Dreams, written by Dayal Kaur Khalsa and read with permission by Penguin Random House. After the reading, Momma Molasses will perform a song related to the book, a wonderful opportunity for children, and grown-ups, to dance and sing along! A coloring or activity sheet will also be available during the event.
The 24,000 square foot museum is located at 101 Country Music Way (corner of Moore & Cumberland Streets) in Historic Downtown Bristol, Va.
