Storytime at the PlayHouse: Ramadan/Eid al-Fitr
May 29 @ 10:30 am – 11:00 am

Everyone loves a good story: explore some with us covering a variety of topics including holidays, cultures, and languages with people from our community. Most Storytimes will be bilingual with a language related to the culture or holiday we are covering.

Ramadan which leads to the celebration Eid-al Fitr, is one of the most important Muslim holidays of the year. We will learn about the holiday through children’s books while also learning some Arabic vocabulary. Make bookmarks with us at the end.

Storytime at the PlayHouse is on select Fridays and Saturdays.

Included with museum admission or membership.
