After our grand opening, join us Wednesday mornings at 10:00 am as we read favorites both old and new. While geared toward the three to five-year-old set, all ages will be welcome!
In the meantime, we will be offering periodic "Story Times from Home" which will be posted right here, so be sure to keep checking this site!
This first “Story Time from Home” is a reading of Racketty-Packetty House, written in 1906 by Frances Hodgson Burnett. It is a long-ish book, so the reading will be done in four sessions, each about twenty-five minutes long and posted at intervals. Our story times, once the bookstore is open, will be geared toward preschool-aged children but, because schools are closed for now, this story time is appropriate for older children as well.
Enjoy … and bring your imaginations with you while you listen to a reading of Racketty-Packetty House!
Frances Eliza Hodgson Burnett (24 November 1849 – 29 October 1924) was a British-American novelist and playwright. She is best known for the three children's novels Little Lord Fauntleroy (published in 1885–1886), A Little Princess (1905), and The Secret Garden (1911). These are still in print and available!
