Story Time: The Tree that Feeds the Heart of the World told by Laura Simms at Sugar Hill Children’s Museum

Enjoy a tender, funny, mysterious and lively fairytale rooted in traditions from around the world, from Turkish, Central Asian and Georgian sources. Join us as we take an enchanted journey with a prince and three princesses to save the world! Travel with us through forests and dry lands, and hear about the wisdom and bravery of our hero as he conquers all difficulties through kindness. Together, we will overcome monsters, dragons and the hunger of a legendary mother eagle, and we will learn about the Tree that blooms three golden apples every year to feed the entire world!
Join us as we celebrate the natural world, sustainability and nature as potent sources of joy and energy. This magical storytelling by Laura Simms is accompanied by music performed by Bryan Wade and will be followed by art-making activities for the entire family!
