Winnie the Pooh and Honey Too!


Sat Jun 10 2023 at 11:00 am to 01:00 pm


The Culinary Literacy Center at Parkway Central Library | Philadelphia, PA

Join us for a Saturday family program to learn all about Winnie the Pooh's favorite food -- honey!
About this Event

Join us for a very special Saturday family program that combines maps, children's literature, and real live honeybees!

The Free Library’s newest exhibition, Mapping Imagination: The Art of World-Building, is a collaboration between the Map Collection and Children’s Literature Research Collection that explores the creative and artistic choices that mapmakers use to build worlds and enhance storytelling. One very adorable item from the exhibition is a hand-drawn map of the Hundred Acre Woods, the home of Winnie the Pooh

This program will bring together a food librarian, a children's librarian, and a very special guest, Don Shump, a beekeeper from the Philadelphia Bee Company. We will visit the beehives on the Culinary Literacy Center rooftop, learn all about the inner-workings of the hives, and enjoy honeyed snacks. Then, we will be treated to a story-time all about honey.

This event is free and open to families with children ages 5 and up. Pre-registration is required. Please write to [email protected] with any questions, or to inform us of dietary restrictions. To learn more about the Culinary Literacy Center, please visit our website.
