In this MFA Playdates at Home, after reading the book Swimmy, we look at a Soprano ocarina in the Museum's collection, which is an instrument in the shape of a fish! We also watch a special performance of a folk song played on an ocarina in the Museum's collection. Then we get step-by-step instructions on how to make our own fish out of clay or playdough.
Swimmy (Knopf Books for Young Readers, 1963), written and illustrated by Leo Lionni, is read with permission from Random House LLC.
