The University of Iowa Museum of Natural History continues the spring series Cuentos en el Museo (Spanish Storytime) at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 16, in the Biosphere Discovery Hub.

The museum also continues the spring series Storytime Adventures at 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 17, in Mammal Hall. This month, Storytime Adventures explores the colorful world of zebras. (What is black and white and read all over? Zebra story time!) Readings are followed by related activities to do at the museum and at home.

Storytime Adventures is held on the third Sunday of each month; museum staff explore animals and the environment in Iowa and around the world. Stories and hands-on activities are geared toward elementary-aged children and their families. Please call ahead for groups larger than 10 participants.
