“Daisy and the Doll” is a true story as told by Vermont’s African American storyteller Daisy Turner. The story takes place in Grafton, Vt., in the 1890s, when Daisy was eight years old. Her teacher gave Daisy a doll and a poem to present at an end-of-school program, but instead of memorizing the poem, Daisy surprised everyone by reciting a poem of her own. Children will find out what happened next, and make a doll using wooden clothespins and other materials that Daisy would have had for making playthings.
The program is appropriate for children ages 4 to 8. Parents or caregivers are welcome to participate or visit exhibits.
