Winter Getaway

10:30am-1:00pm: Celebrating The Snowy Day
The Snowy Day, written and illustrated by Ezra Jack Keats, was one of the first children’s books in the 20th century to feature an African-American child as the main character, and this year the U.S. Postal Service released stamps that commemorate the beloved book. Join the St. Louis Black Authors of Children’s Literature Initiative to celebrate Peter, dressed in his cuddly red snow suit, and dive into a playful “snowy day” of your own at the museum. Families will enjoy listening to stories, making snowballs and snowflakes, playing in the snow, warming up with cocoa and cookies, writing and mailing a Snowy Day-stamped letter, and meeting local authors!

1:00-1:45pm: The Celia and Little Celia Show
Celia’s Sing-a-Long Dance Party takes an unexpected turn when Little Celia shows up with her hilarious show-stopping antics. Enjoy great music and lots of laughs!
