The classic fairytale “Jack and the Beanstalk” was the most popular story told to children in colonial times. That makes the colonial farmhouse at the Buttonwoods Museum the perfect place for a reading of the centuries-old story.

This magical story hour takes place on Thursday, July 11, from 11 a.m. to noon. It is designed for preschool and kindergarten-aged children. After hearing the story, the young participants will plant their own magic beans in a cup to grow at home.

Cost is $5 per child. Register by email at [email protected] noting the number of children you plan to bring.
