Kids attending Storytime Expeditions

Anansi the Spider is one of the great folk heroes of the world. He is a rogue, a mischief maker, and a wise, lovable creature who triumphs over larger foes. Follow him through this Caldecott-winning adaptation, which combines bold, rich color with traditional West African design motifs and authentic Ashanti language rhythms. This program complements the World Wonders: Troupe Da-Da Drums and Dance Ensemble program.

Free with General Admission
