Story Explorers

Stories for children aged 6 and under / Online 

Sunderland Music Hub, Sunderland Libraries and Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens are delighted to share with you their joint project, Story Explorers!

Story Explorers is a project for children aged 6 and under, created during lockdown when children, their families and carers are unable to visit their favourite Sunderland venues. Story Explorers brings together storytelling and singalongs with some of the wonderful collections at Sunderland Libraries and Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens.

This project has been supported using public funding from Sunderland Music Hub through Department for Education and Arts Council England, Sunderland City Council and Sunderland Libraries Services and Sunderland Culture through Arts Council England.

Story Explorers – Dinosaur Roar

Join us for our first Story Explorers video, where we read Dinosaur Roar by Henrietta Stickland and Paul Stickland and go on a musical adventure around Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens!

Story Explorers: Wow said the Owl 

For our second video, we’re reading Wow said the Owl by Tim Hopgood – the story of a curious little owl who decides to stay awake all day, instead of all night, and discovers a world bursting with colour. Then join us for a musical adventure around Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens as we explore all the colours we can kind there!
