Moms & Tots (And Sometimes Pops!)
The Art Museum of South Texas presents a reading of David McKee’s Elmer the Elephant for toddlers ages 2-5 (accompanied by mom or pop, of course).

Toddlers will use bright colored paints and sponges to create their own Elmer the Elephant after the reading. $5 members, $10 non-members. Saturday, 10 a.m., 1902 N. Shoreline Blvd., 825-3500, artmuseumofsouthtexas.org.
