Story Time: Elmer the Patchwork Elephant
Elmer the elephant is covered in bright-colored patchwork. No wonder the other elephants laugh at him! Children of all ages are invited to discover David McKee’s comical fable about a colorful elephant’s struggle to be himself in Elmer the Patchwork Elephant (1989). After the reading, participants will learn where elephants live in Africa before painting their own colorful Elmer during a guided art-making workshop.
Story Time is a short format, informal storytelling program facilitated by Fowler educators at 11:30 am on the first and third Friday of each month. This event is free, no reservation required. Meet in the Fowler’s Lobby.
