Take a look. It's in a book: National Building Museum's Storyhour

We can't quite figure out the situation with the NBM's storyhour, which the museum purportedly holds the first Tuesday of every month at 10:30 and 11:30 a.m. in the Building Zone.  We've been there on other first Tuesdays and NADA, NOTHING, ZILCH.  But, we lucked out last week and were there to participate in the reading of "The Night Worker," by Kate Banks.  I thought this book was pretty cool -- it's about a little boy who lucks out when his daddy takes him to visit his nighttime construction job.  Plus the reader demonstrated all kinds of construction things from the book with the toys in the Building Zone.  There was even a related activity afterwards, but by that point we were READY to go.  (Luckily the NBM posts an activity worksheet online and we are hoping to do that soon).  And it only went downhill from there as mom had to take the only remaining doctor's appointments for us smack during our naptime.  Argggg!
