TOLEDO — The Toledo Museum of Art and the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library will begin engaging their smallest patrons in a new way when a sensory literacy program for toddlers debuts.
ToddlerTime Tours, a two-part, multi-sensory experience that brings books and art to life for children ages 18 to 36 months, is a sequel to the museum’s nationally recognized Baby Tours. The free program aims to engage toddlers through visual and textual literacy, dual skills that will be important for these digital natives, many of whom are as proficient with tablet computers as they are with wooden blocks.
The new program aims to build upon an already-present connection between visuals and storytelling.
Toddlers and parents will get the chance to experience these librarian- and docent-led tours starting in February, when they can attend one or both portions of the two-stage program.
