Mr. Paca’s Garden Storytime: Hornbooks and Inkwells

April 11, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Mr. Paca’s Garden Storytime is a fun hour full of reading and activities in the William Paca Garden, a secret treasure in the Historic District of Annapolis. Each program is designed for little ones, 3-7 years, with a book reading, song, and craft/art project, plus time to explore the Paca Garden following the story hour.

This Week’s Book: Hornbooks and Inkwells by Verla Kay

Life in an eighteenth century one-room schoolhouse might be different from today, but like any other pair of siblings, brothers Peter and John Paul get up to plenty of mischief! Let’s follow the two as they work with birch-bark paper and hornbooks, play tricks on each other, get in trouble, and celebrate when John Paul learns to read and write. Experience a taste of the eighteenth century as we make hornbooks and visit Mr. Paca’s kitchen.

Advance registration required, space is limited.

Cost: $10 per Child and $5 per Adult for General Admission; $8 per Child and Free for Adults for HA Members and Military; $5 per Child and Free for Adults for Family Circle Members
