Explore Virtual Arizona Summertime Storytelling With Pueblo Grande

Join Arizona authors in a virtual storytelling of their books through Aug. 8. The free videos, which kicked off mid-July, will be posted on the Pueblo Grande Museum YouTube channel.

Each week features a different book and craft to go along with it. Fun craft kits related to each story can be purchased online for $5 each through Activenet and include a free child’s admission pass to visit the museum. Kits can be picked up Tuesday through Saturday, 8am–1pm, beginning the week prior to the scheduled date of the virtual storytelling. Access to all storytelling videos will end Sept. 5.
