Looking for something for the kids to do in February? How about taking them to the Aquarium of Niagara to listen to a story, or two. Beginning Feb. 1, each storyteller will share tales in their own special way. Children must be accompanied by at least one adult.

Storytelling will begin with Annemarie Jason, an annual Aquarium of Niagara visitor, who literally pulls her tales out of her "story hat." Her stories involve music, action, puppets and rhymes. She and the other tellers of tales will appear at 11:30 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. each Saturday.

Christina Brown from the Community Music School in Buffalo will be at the Aquarium of Niagara on Feb. 8. This day will feature music, movement and sing-along. Jamie Rowitsch, also from the Community Music School, will be on hand Feb. 15 to share her storytelling.

The final story date is Feb. 22, when The Wondermakers, a traveling troupe, perform Story Theater, fables and folktales.

All the storytellers will be in the second level Community Room. Aquarium of Niagara members are admitted free and regular admission rates will be in effect for non-members; adults, $10; $6.50 for children and free for ages 2 and under. No reservations are needed. For more information, call 716-285-3575, ext. 206.
