Book Reading in the Children's Museum

  • The Grace 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. 

This month’s featured book is Harry The Dirty Dog by Gene Zion and Illustrated by Margaret Bloy Graham. 


Harry is a white dog with black spots who loves everything . . . except baths. So one day before bath time, Harry runs away. He plays outside all day long, digging and sliding in everything from garden soil to pavement tar. By the time he returns home, Harry is so dirty he looks like a black dog with white spots. His family doesn't even recognize him!

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