Storytime @ Booked Bookstore

Drop in with kids ages 0-5 next Saturday, February 11, at 10:30am for a Valentine's Storytime. We'll sing songs, read some sweet books about love, and have crafts and coloring! Plus, check out our selection of Valentine's Day books for all ages, from beloved board books to steamy romances. We love love here!

Black History Month Highlight

The Yellow Room is honoring Black History Month through storytelling, poetry and music! A favorite book of theirs is Harlem Grown by Tony Hillery. Learn more about Tony and his mission to end poverty through urban gardening here.
Other books they love include Hey Black Child by Useni Eugene Perkins, This Jazz Man by Karen Ehrhardt, and Full Full Full of Love by Trish Cooke.
The Yellow Room class also enjoys listening to jazz music by Louis Armstrong! They have fun singing the ABC's with Usher and listening to a young poet (3 years old!) recite Hey Black Child. Enjoy!

Meet Dawn Borchardt! Dawn teaches in the Pre-K Blue Room. Dawn has been teaching at SLC for eight years and says the best thing about teaching at SLC is the children (of course!).
