Stories and illustrations are often a child’s first exposure to the joy of reading and the wonder of art. ROAR! is The Ringling’s family storytime designed to engage toddlers and preschoolers in activities that connect art with early literacy. Join us in for a story and an accompanying activity. This program is free and no registration is required.
Please note: Beginning in January, ROAR! will be expanding to two weekly sessions on Thursday and Friday mornings! The program will also require a free ticket that can be picked up in the Visitors Pavilion the morning of the program.
