In Storyland: A Trip Through Childhood Favorites, children explore literacy skills and concepts through imaginative, interactive experiences and dramatic play.

Families immerse themselves in the world of The Tale of Peter Rabbit, one of the best-selling children's books of all time. Children explore Peter Rabbit's world as they build vocabulary and narrative skills while having fun with patterns, words and dramatic play. (Northfield Public Library location)

The Snowy Daywelcomes visitors to Peter's wintry world, where a young boy explores his neighborhood after a fresh snowfall. In addition to dramatic play activities, children have opportunities to build print and sound awareness. (Northfield ECFE location will be open soon)

The exhibit features an area based on Where's Spot?, a well-known board book about the search for Spot the dog. Babies and young toddlers will explore sounds and images through busy wall interactives, highlighting how literacy development begins at birth. (Northfield ECFE location will be open soon)
