FORT WORTH, Texas—The Amon Carter Museum of American Art invites families with young children to participate in this summer’s free Storytime series, held every Wednesday, June 7 through July 26, from 10:30 a.m.–noon. Storytime presents children’s books and connects them with artworks. The theme for 2017 is Summer Vacation: June 7—Vacation? Staycation!; June 14—Pack It Up!; June 21—Are We There Yet?; June 28—Busy in the City; July 5—Unwind in the Wilderness; July 12—Places to Be, People to See!; July 19—Adventures Await You!; July 26—Eat and Explore!.

“We have eight fun installments of Storytime, so make plans to come once or every Wednesday,” says Jessica Kennedy, public programs manager. “During each Storytime, parents may register their children to win that week’s featured books and a drawing will be held at the end of each program.” Those chosen need not be present to win.
