Bedtime Buckaroos: “Carl Discovers Math and Art.”

Posted on January 4, 2021 by Seth "from Marketing" Spillman in

Join us Monday evenings 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.

“CARL has a problem. Though he loves school, this inquisitive chipmunk has a difficult time understanding what math is all about. Noted painted and illustrator John Potter and award-winning author Lynn Estes Friess again team up to present an engaging read-aloud story, sure to delight young readers. The stories about CARL and his friends are set inside and around the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Distinguished by its mission and its stunning location on a butte overlooking the National Elk Refuge amid real wildlife habitat, the National Museum of Wildlife Art of the United States is unique among American art museums.”
