Asheville Arts Center Brings back Story Time with a “Ta Da” Twist

bnAsheville Arts Center is partnering with local Barnes & Nobles Book Stores to offer a unique interactive experience for children, blending literature with the arts.

“There is nothing more exciting than watching a child experience a book. And when they put on a costume or act out a scene, they become part of the story,” said Heather Taft, owner, Asheville Arts Center.  “This idea came about from reading to my daughter, Ceili.  For her, it’s not enough to tell her a story, she has to act, sing, dance or play music to it.”

And the Asheville Arts Center is pulling out all the props, from costumes to musical instruments to tutus- these kids will get to learn while having fun.  And the best part?  It’s free!

“Every parent wants their child to LOVE to read,” said Taft.  “Early exposure to active, engaging story times, helps to build future readers!”

Story Time begins Monday, Nov. 2nd and runs through Valentines Day.  Books include Jungle Drums, Angelina Ballerina, Dr. Seuss and other children’s classics.
