STORY TRUNKS

and PA One Book Materials

Each year, traveling trunks are developed by museum educators to help expand upon the concepts in the chosen book. Each trunk is filled with fun book-related puppets, games, and manipulatives for young children.

In addition, each trunk includes a guide for librarians and educators that encourage use of the trunk contents in activities that are aligned with Pennsylvania Early Learning Standards.  

And be sure to check out our selection of rubber stamps as well!
