Bedtime Buckaroos: “J is for Jackalope”

Posted on September 13, 2021 by Seth "from Marketing" Spillman in

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, I have the pleasure of reading the Western Heritage Award-winning book “J is for Jackalope” written and illustrated by Teal Blake.

“The storyline captures a turning point in the life of a young boy named Samuel CB. Bored with the chores and limitations of boyhood, Samuel is craving more. After hearing stories of the fabled jackalope living in the mountains nearby, he sets out in pursuit and in the end also finds a great friend.”
