A Very Special Pop-Up! Storytime with Robert Sabuda

Robert Sabuda; The Little Mermaid

When you open a pop-up book, it's fun to take a closer look! Join leading children's pop-up book artist Robert Sabuda for an exciting adventure as he introduces young visitors to his magical, movable books. Then see what surprises unfold as you explore the Met's galleries on a guided family tour or a self-guided gallery hunt!

A selection of Mr. Sabuda's books, including his newest title, The Little Mermaid, will be available for purchase in the Uris Center Met Store. Mr. Sabuda will be signing books after the presentation.

Registration for the presentation portion of this program is now closed. Preregistration not required for the book-signing portion of this program.

Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. All are welcome; best for ages 3 and up. Direct any questions to nolen.library@metmuseum.org.

This event is made possible by the Friends of Watson Library at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
