The Bugliest Bug Event with Raising Readers
11 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Do you have six legs? Do you wiggle or crawl? Could you be the buggliest bug of them all?

Celebrate The Bugliest Bug, written by Carol Diggory Shields and illustrated by Scott Nash. Join us for a special visit by illustrator Scott Nash from 1 p.m.-1:30 p.m., create a bug crown, search for insects throughout the Museum & Theatre, learn about important insect adaptations and innovations, and more.

This event is generously supported by Raising Readers. Raising Readers is a statewide program funded by the Libra Foundation, led and administered by MaineHealth, in collaboration with EMHS, and support from The Barbara Bush Children's Hospital at Maine Medical Center. Through well child visits, many 5-year-old children in Maine will receive The Bugliest Bug from their pediatrician this year or next.

Free with admission
