Story Time: We All Went on Safari

November 16, 2018 | 11:30AM - 12:30PM

Join Arusha, Mosi, Tumpe, and their Maasai friends as they set out on a counting journey through the grasslands of Tanzania in We All Went on Safari by Laurie Krebs (2004). Along the way, the children count from one to ten in both English and Swahili while encountering all sorts of animals—elephants, lions, and monkeys, oh my! Children of all ages are invited to join the fun in this interactive storytelling experience as we look, listen, and learn in our special exhibition World on the Horizon: Swahili Arts Across the Indian Ocean.

After the reading, families are encouraged to explore the exhibition uninterrupted before the Fowler Museum opens to the general public at noon.


Story Time is a short format, informal storytelling program facilitated by Fowler educators at 11:30 am on the first and third Friday of most months. This event is free, no reservation required. Meet in the Fowler’s Lobby.

Related Exhibition

World on the Horizon explores Swahili arts as objects of mobility, outcomes of encounter, and as products of trade and imperialism. Works from different regions and time periods come together in this exhibition to reveal the movement of artistic forms, motifs, and preferences, and to reflect the changing meanings they may carry during the course of their life histories.

Parking available in UCLA Lot 4, 398 Westwood Plaza, directly off Sunset Blvd | $12/day. Rideshare drop-off 305 Royce Drive.
