Sharing Olympic stories at the History Center of Olmsted County


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- In the spirit of the Winter Olympics, the History Center of Olmsted County is teaching children about Russian cultures and traditions with children's books.

Families listened to two storybooks Tuesday highlighting Russian traditions and the language.

Every Tuesday in February, the History Center will share stories based on Russian culture.

Leah Brey-Fratzke of the History Center of Olmsted County said story time is the center's latest effort to reach out to young children and teach them about the Olympic games and the world.

"We live in a very global community and Rochester, historically, has been a place for a lot of new immigrants, and so I feel our community really embodies that experience of building the American dream," Brey-Fratzke said.

Next week's books put a Russian spin on classics like the gingerbread man.
