Join us as we spark imaginations by hosting virtual bedtime stories with “Bedtime Buckaroos,” presented by Paycom.
Storytime plays a vital role in introducing children to the magic of books. Each week we’ll feature a new engaging Western story read by local authors, community leaders, traditional storytellers and Museum staff.
This week listen to Lynn Fries read her book “Carl and the Shadow Hill Gang.”
“It’s another adventure for Carl! This delightful read-aloud story presents Carl, an inquisitive chipmunk, as he uses his reading skills and thoughtful planning to take care of a problem at the museum. Colorful illustrations by noted landscape and wildlife artist John Potter visually engage young readers, in a series that continues to be a family favorite.” Lynn Estes
Friess was born in upstate New York and is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin. A proud mother of four and grandmother of 12, she resides in Wyoming. Author of three books, “Western Lullaby” which was the recipient of the 2011 gold IPPY award and the 2011 Gold Mothers Choice Award, “Jackson Hole’s Carl Discovers Wildlife Art”, and “Carl and the Mysterious Nibbler”. The “Carl” title is the first in a planned series of books about an inquisitive chipmunk. With delightful illustrations by John Potter and written in an engaging style to introduce children to wildlife, the proceeds from the Carl books will help sponsor programs, exhibits, and operating support for the National Museum of Wildlife Art.
