Mississippi Children's Museum


Wild About Reading Gallery

MCM’s literacy gallery, Wild About Reading, exposes visitors to the joy of words and creative expression. A playful landscape of language and literary encounters, this area provides fun, interactive activities that explore the basics of reading (letters, sounds, parts of speech, and reading practice), while celebrating the wonder of literature and the active nature of a child’s involvement in the process of reading.

Our goal is to make the practice of reading and thinking a compelling tool for exploration and discovery in all of the museum’s work, so we can help children to become readers, writers, and tellers of their own stories.
