Alphabet War

The DoSeum is a place where interactive fun and hands-on learning come together—a place where minds are always at play.  During your visit, our exhibits, programs, and classes will encourage young minds to explore the joy of learning through connections to STEM, the arts, and literacy, but curiosity and exploration don't have to end when you leave!

Explore our DIY Activities, Storytimes, and other family resources that were created for you to DO at home and stay connected with your family while keeping minds at play in between your visits!


Alphabet War


Join us for this special Storytime of The Alphabet War, narrated by LeDerick Horne--a performance poet, an advocate for people with disabilities, and our Outside The Lunchbox Luncheon keynote speaker. As we jump into the pages of The Alphabet War we’ll follow Adam from his first days in Kindergarten, where the teacher wanted him to learn about letters. But “p” looked like “q,” and “b” looked like “d.” We'll follow Adam's journey through 4th grade, when he learned that he could excel in other things and he gained the confidence to take chances with reading. One day he found himself reading a book all by himself!


Stay tuned through the end of the reading for a special message from LeDerick Horne about his outlook on reading publicly and how it relates to his performance poetry.
