Tales Under the Tree

Gather the kiddos and settle in for a story to spark their curiosity about science and nature! Join us in person at The Bishop at 3pm every Saturday and Sunday for a special story time.

Tales Under the Tree takes place under the Ralph S. French Charitable Foundation Mighty Oak in the Mosaic Backyard Universe and features a different science or nature-themed book each month, followed by a craft, game, or fun facts related to the story. At the end of each month, a video of the book reading will also be featured on The Bishop’s Facebook page.
