Bedtime Buckaroos: “The Great Ball Game: A Muskogee Story”

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 Makenzi Nothenor read “The Great Ball Game: A Muskogee Story” by Joseph Bruchac  (Author), Susan L. Roth (Illustrator)

“In this traditional Muskogee story, the birds and the animals quarrel over which group is better, those with wings or those with teeth. The argument threatens to turn into all-out war, so the creatures decide to settle it by playing a ball game instead.”
