Explore seven beloved and award-winning picture books that have been transformed into three-dimensional bilingual learning environments at the Storyland: A Trip Through Childhood Favorites exhibition at ImaginOn uptown. Children can build vocabulary and narrative skills while searching for Peter’s lost belongings, harvesting vegetables and playing in Peter’s burrow like those found in the book “The Tale of Peter Rabbit.” Babies and young toddlers can experiment with busy wall interactives based on “Where’s Spot?” while adults can get tips about cultivating early-literacy skills. Other books included in the exhibit include “The Snowy Day,”  “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” and “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom.”

Created with children ages 8 and younger in mind, the exhibition also highlights six early-reading skills: disposition to read, print awareness, letter knowledge, sound awareness, vocabulary and narrative skills and comprehension. After touring the exhibition, kids can create a drawing inspired by the books and write a caption, title or story to share in an electronic gallery via the digital drawing cam. Storyland: A Trip Though Childhood Favorites is free and runs through Sept. 9.
