The Woodlands Children’s Museum presents Storybook Theatre at 11 a.m., featuring “Draw Me a Story” by Olivier Dupin. Anna loves reading and books! One night Little Red Riding Hood calls out to her from the book and asks to have her story changed, so Anna uses her felt-tip pens to change the tale. Then other fairy tale characters do the same. This is how Anna became an illustrator! Introduce your child to the wonder of reading and instill a love of books at an early age. Storybook Theatre combines your favorite childhood books with songs, rhymes and fingerplays which are meant to promote early literacy and enhance language development. Included in the price of admission, which is $7.50 for adults and children 1 year and older.
