In this highly immersive and engaging exhibit, families discover the joy and power of reading at any age. Imagine stepping into the world of your favorite storybooks. Kids can explore literacy skills and concepts through imaginative, interactive experiences and dramatic play with books like:

The Tale of Peter Rabbit
Families can immerse themselves in the world of The Tale of Peter Rabbit, one of the best selling children’s books of all time! Here kids can explore Peter Rabbit’s world, as they build vocabulary and narrative skills while searching for Peter’s lost belongings, harvesting vegetables, and playing in Peter’s burrow.

The Snowy Day
The Snowy Day welcomes visitors to Peter’s wintry world, where a young boy explores his neighborhood after a fresh snowfall. Here kids can take part in dramatic play activities, and opportunities to build print and sound awareness, as they build a snowman, and explore wintry sounds and words.

Where’s Spot?
Where’s Spot? engages our youngest visitors to search for Spot the dog. Babies and young toddlers will explore and learn about sounds and images through busy wall interactives, encouraging the importance of literacy development at a young age.
