A few weeks ago, we started a regular Monday storytime. This Monday we had several children come along and - with the permission of their parents - we took a few photographs. Storytime takes place at 10am (for toddlers) and again at 2pm (for under-5s). Karen, who runs storytime for us, is utterly brilliant, with props and a storyboard to make sure everyone participates and gets involved. Monday's story was the Very Hungry Caterpillar (Saturday's food items going up on the board you'll notice). If storytime continues to grow in popularity, we may have to take over the front of the shop... Charlie & Lola is a firm favourite - our Charlie & Lola fun day (all day on Saturday October 7th may be a bit busy... Seems like everyone had a great time (actually, the little boy with the big grin is my son Alex, previously featured in this blog as chief bubble machine tester, and getting into some good habits for future publicity photos!) Our bookgroup has its inaugural meeting tonight in the shop - pop in from 7pm onwards for a glass of wine, to sign up for our Wednesday or Thursday group, and discover which books are first on the list...

  1. Your story telling session looks fabulous; the children are so smiley! Well done, what a great idea. I'm very excited to see what you're going to be doing in your reading group; Check out my blog for this year's reads.
