New, Improved Storytime!

If you’ve been to a Blue Baboon Books storytime, you know how amazing and awesome they are! Ms. Amy really brings it with songs, dances, finger play, and FUN! Our stories are both classic and new releases and filled with interactive engagement to really bring our audience into the story. 

You’ve probably also noticed that things can get a little cramped in our cozy little store. So we’re changing things up a bit. This can make the storytime experience less than ideal for both parents and kiddos. Things can get quite loud, and we can all get a bit grumpy when we’re crowded together or too long.  

Starting in July, we’re going to limit our storytimes to 20 children. Parents will need to reserve their children’s spots in storytime. Reservations will cost $3, but you’ll get a coupon for $3 to use at the store within two weeks of the storytime. 

We’ve also created a gorgeous Storytime Alcove! Ms. Patricia painted a gorgeous mural of a storytime tree filled with adorable woodland characters. We’ve also hung some lovely curtains that make the alcove especially cozy — almost like a fort. Plus, the air conditioning is exceptional in that area of the store.

As far as reservations go, parents can purchase those in the store at the register. Additionally, they can purchase online using the Eventbright links within each of our storytime Facebook events. Eventbright charges a small fee when you purchase tickets online, but you will not have to pay that fee if you purchase the reservation in the store. If the event is not full on the day of the storytime, we will accept walk-ins. But to be fair, walk-ins will have to pay for the $3 ticket as well.

We’re really jazzed about our new and improved storytimes! We’re hoping it gives kids and parents an exceptional and unique storytime experience!
