Book Reading in the Children's Museum

  • The Grace Museum - Children's Museum 102 Cypress Street Abilene, TX, 79601 United States (map)

Join us in the Children's Museum for this month's reading held for families on the famous mini-Paramount stage followed by an art activity in the Children’s Diner. 

Registration required. $5 per family or $10 per family to receive a copy of the book.

The book for this month is "Ice Cream Summer" by Peter Sis.

"In response to a letter from his Grandpa, Joe is happy to convince his grandfather that he deserves a special trip planned for later in the summer. He is definitely not forgetting about his schoolwork. Joe is reading, writing a book, solving word problems, studying history, and even learning cartography. What he doesn't mention is that he is learning all of this through his fascination with ice cream. Joe eats it and draws it, builds it and dreams it, and even knows the ins and outs of how it came to be. When Joe finds out where they are going on their special trip, it is the cherry on top of a fantastic summer."
