This summer, the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society will offer fun summer opportunities for kids ages 3 to 6. Bookworm Adventures will take place throughout the summer.

Bookworm Adventure workshops help children ages 3-6 explore language and literacy through storytelling, the use of a felt board to illustrate what they have learned, and activities that will make the story come to life. This is a teacher-led program using NoahWebster’s historic home, the museum, and a hands-on discovery space to inspire children to love to read at this critical stage of learning. Children must be toilet trained and are asked to bring a snack each day.

These workshops take place Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to noon during the weeks of June 27-July 1, July 11-15, July 25-29, andAugust 15-19, 2016. Registration fee is $155 for museum members per week ($165 for non-members) and $30 per day for museum members ($33 for non-members).

To register for this program, contact the Education Department at the Noah Webster House 860-521-5362 ext.14 or visit www.NoahWebsterHouse.org.
