Topsy Turvy Thursdays at Sugar Hill Children’s Museum

Join the fun, and help our amazing storyteller and local resident Carletta Joy Walker choose the book of the week, and bring each story to life!

Storytelling is the oldest and most powerful means for sharing history and values, and for encouraging imagination in young children. And it’s one of the pillars of learning at Sugar Hill Children’s Museum of Art & Storytelling.

Performed through a variety of methods, our storytellers engage children in the timeless oral tradition as well as through the arts of theater, movement, music and film. Children are encouraged to reflect on what they hear, and to author and share their own stories—a practice that builds language skills, critical thinking and confidence.
