Get Ready for Story Time!!!

Stretch out those reading eyes and get your children hyped up, because Story Time season begins VERY soon!

To get you in the know, Story Time is something we do every other week for children ages 2-5 and their accompanying grown-ups. We take a theme, read aloud a book or two about that theme, and run an activity so participants can get into the subject and take home a souvenir. This starts younger readers thinking about books not just as words & pictures on a page, but as inspiration for new ideas and how to bring them into reality.
