Under the Egg by Laura Marx Fitzgerald

Prior to their museum visit, students should read Laura Marx Fitzgerald’s Under the Egg. If your Eager Readers like art history and mysteries, then this is the book for them! At the Amon Carter, gallery teachers connect characters and plot lines to artworks from the museum’s collection. Students seek clues throughout the galleries and participate in a scientific experiment to solve a museum mystery.

Little Readers Book Club

The Matchbox Diary by Paul Fleischman

(Recommended for homeschool students ages 5–8)

Prior to their museum visit, students should read Paul Fleischman’s The Matchbox Diary. Students will love reading about how a young girl learned of her great-grandfather’s life from the objects he collected. “Pick whatever you like most. Then I’ll tell you its story.” At the Amon Carter, gallery teachers help students connect the book’s major themes to museum-related concepts by looking at and discussing carefully chosen artworks from the museum’s collection. Students collect museum treasures to keep in their own cigar boxes, just like great-grandfather’s.
