A recent award of $600 from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA) will benefit elementary and pre-K school students by introducing them to professional storytellers.
The Mid-Michigan Children’s Museum (MMCM) will rely on recommendations from literacy experts in the field of education and performance art to select the most appropriate individuals to entertain our young visitors and the adults who accompany them to the Children’s Museum.
By telling stories to children, we give them the tools of wisdom, understanding, compassion, harmony, beauty, peace and spiritual guidance, as well as imagination, empowerment, hope, freedom, courage and joy to follow them throughout their lives. Story telling helps children of all ages to build blocks for the skills they need to manage and enjoy their lives.
Families will be invited to come and enjoy the interactive, entertaining performance. Storytelling can become part of the family heritage and the memories of childhood as storytelling always establishes bonds of love. The performances will be announced via the MMCM website: michildrensmuseum.com.
The Mid-Michigan Children’s Museum is located at 315 West Genesee Avenue in Saginaw. The MMCM places priority on teamwork, creativity and critical thinking through discovery-based learning for children from birth to 12 years of age. Special rates are available for groups who pre-schedule visits to the MMCM. The MMCM is also an ideal location for play groups, scout troops, field trips, birthday parties, family reunions and corporate events. Annual memberships may be purchased by families who plan frequent visits. Visit the Website www.michildrensmuseum.com for more information.
