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. Tickets include Museum Admission for the day.

Schedule

November 15 & 16 | First the Egg by Laurie Vaccaro Seeger

This week, our ROAR theme was inspired by all the growing and changing plants and animals that live around The Ringling’s Grounds and Gardens! We will be reading the book First the Egg by Laurie Vaccaro Seeger and then creating baby chick finger puppets.

November 22 & 23 | NO ROAR Today.

Enjoy the holiday! See you next week.

November 29 & 30 Stack the Cats by Susie Ghahremani

In this week’s ROAR program, we will be reading the book Stack the Cats by Susie Ghahremani and then creating our own cat stack collages! ROAR this week was inspired by this woodblock print, called Cats, by artist Saitō Kiyoshi. This woodblock print is not currently on display but is still an important piece in our collection here at The Ringling.

December 6 & 7 Sam and Dave Dig a Hole by Mac Barnett

For this week’s ROAR, we were inspired by all of the spectacular objects on display here at the museum! We will be reading the book Sam and Dave Dig a Hole written by Mac Barnett and illustrated by Jon Klassen, which stars two boys on a hunt for something spectacular. Afterwards, we will be using paintbrushes and warm water to excavate our own spectacular objects out of blocks of ice. ***This week’s project should not be messy; however, your child may get wet***

December 13 & 14 Penguin Problems by Jory John and Lane Smith

The next ROAR program was inspired by this image of a penguin costume from our Tibbals Circus Collection. For this week’s program, we will be reading the book Penguin Problems by Jory John and Lane Smith and then painting our own penguins! ***We will be using paint this week, so the project might get messy***


• ROAR! is made possible in part by the generous support of the Lester E. Bessemer and Tilley Bessemer Endowment.
