The Water Princess book cover

G.P. Putnam's Sons Books for Young Readers

Start with a fun picture book during storytime. Then explore our Downstream exhibition using our self-guided activity sheet.

Ask questions, find clues, and work together with your group to solve puzzles—and you just might earn a water-themed prize!

Close out your visit to our museum with a stop at our Object Explorer, an interactive touchtable where you can learn the history behind everyday objects like ice-cube trays.

This month we will be reading The Water Princess, written by Susan Verde and illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds. Afterwards we’ll decorate our own water jugs and crowns with crayons, markers, and stickers!

Family Swim takes place the third Saturday of each month through December 2022. Admission is free and no reservations are necessary.
