|Next storytelling program at Johnson County Museum is Feb. 17|
The next session of entertaining and educational stories involving nature, history, culture, and art being presented by local Storyteller Jo Ho as part of a storytelling series being offered by the Johnson County Museum is set for mid-February.
Titled simply Jo Ho, Storyteller, this series of stand-alone programs is for ages three to five. All programs will take place beginning at 10 a.m. on the third Wednesday of the month at the Johnson County Museum, located at 6305 Lackman Road, Shawnee. The cost for each one-hour program is $2 per person, including adults, and museum members are free.
The next program in the series is called "Bedtime Tales with Lamb Chop" and will take place on Wednesday, Feb. 17. Participants are invited to put on their PJs and get cozy for tales with Jo and the very feisty sock puppet, Lamb Chop. Created in 1957 by the late comedienne and ventriloquist Shari Lewis, Lamb Chop's silly knock-knock jokes and Jo's telling of Lewis' favorite bedtime stories are the perfect recipe for a calm and happy slumber time.
Individual walk-in participations are welcome if space is available, but groups of ten or more must preregister. Individuals and groups can preregister by calling (913) 715-2575.
Other entries in this series will include: "I've Been Workin’ on the Railroad" on March 16, and "Me and My Anatomy" on April 20.
The Johnson County Museum became part of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District effective Jan. 1.
