Read for the Record

October 28, 2021

Thursday, October 28

This globally celebrated event is coming to Pretend City with the help of our community partners from Think Together! As part of the global celebration, we will be reading Amy Wu and the Patchwork Dragon by Kat Zhang. We will also have a variety of sensational storytimes throughout the day.

Free copies of Amy Wu and the Patchwork Dragon will be provided. Limited number of copies. First come, first serve!

Purpose Behind the Play: Read for the record is a global event that helps bridge the gap between all different kinds of socio-economic communities and makes sure that high-quality literature is being provided to everyone! This day emphasizes the importance of reading and spending quality time over pieces of literature and how beneficial those experiences are for children.

  • Smart Art (Times Vary):
    • Engage in a community art project where we work together to create a large dragon.  
    • Create a dancing streamer using recycled materials, fabric and ribbon. 
    • Explore the colors red and gold and learn about what they mean to the Asian culture!

Grown-up Tip: You can have your own story-related, open-ended, art explorations with your child while at home! Allow your child to take the lead and pick their favorite story. You can even encourage them to lead the project and decide which colors, materials, and textures to use while creating! For example, maybe they want to try watercolor on thick paper, glue pictures together in a collage, or try something new like pastels!  Work collaboratively to allow each of your desires to be heard and processed. 

RSVP:    Not required 

Fee:    Included with museum admission
