Story Hour with Jenny is presented by Westport Country Playhouse. Story Hour sessions are at 10AM and 12PM
Maybe Something Beautiful brings the spirit of working and growing together to life. This hour will be special, as Jenny will also read from the Spanish language version of the book. Este libro también se leerá en español — Quizás algo hermoso: Cómo el arte transformó un barrio.
Looking for a fun way for your kids to make new friends and engage in storytelling? Join us for Story Hour with Jenny — interactive readings of social justice-themed picture books for kids in grades K–3! These books will center around the four pillars of our education department — empathy, collaboration, activism and literacy — and are all written and illustrated by BIPOC artists.
Not only will kids get to engage with Jenny — and each other — but we’ll send you a copy of the book we’ll read together for each ticket purchased, plus a bonus activity booklet and crayons! All readings take place over Zoom and are limited to ten children or families per session. All ticketholders will receive an email with a Zoom link for their session two hours prior to the start of each reading. All books are purchased from People Get Ready, a Black-owned community bookspace in New Haven.
The Playhouse is committed to making our educational programming accessible to all children in our community and beyond. To make this a reality, we have pay-what-you-can tickets starting at just $10! For those who are able, there is the option to add a donation towards the cost of providing a book for another child.
