CL’s Kevin C. Madigan Recommends: An exhibit in January that transforms classic stories into three-dimensional plays. “Storyland: A Trip Through Childhood Favorites” will convert seven time-honored picture books such as “The Tale of Peter Rabbit” and “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” into live-action learning settings that highlight six pre-reading skills: disposition to read, print awareness, letter knowledge, sound awareness, vocabulary, and narrative skills and comprehension. Storyland “provides imaginative, book-based experiences for children up to the age of eight, and models early literacy experiences to parents and other adult caregivers,” a spokesperson said. — KCM
