Chicks, Cheetahs, & Sharks, Oh My! Storytime Tomorrow


It’s a big deal in Knoxville tomorrow with the Children’s Festival of Reading happening in World’s Fair Park. I’m so excited to hear Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen, Bob Shea, Jarrett Kroscozka and many other authors and illustrators. I’ll be reading several books by some of them at storytime tomorrow too. So, if you are at the festival, be sure to stop by for a bit! See you storytimers at Union Ave Books tomorrow at 11am!

Dinosaur Storytime Saturday At 11am

Dinosaur Storytime 1

It has been a while since I’ve posted about storytimes here, but they do still happen every first and third Saturday at Union Ave Books. This week is going to be extra gigantic as we read some great books, old and new, about those ferocious (or not) beasts called dinosaurs. Come on out locals! In the words of fabulous author Molly Idle (from twitter), “It promises to be a ROARING good time!”

Dinosaur Storytime 2

Thanksgiving Storytime Tomorrow!

Local Knoxvillians, don’t miss a Thanksgiving storytime tomorrow at 11am at Union Ave Books! We’ll be reading Balloons Over Broadway by Melissa Sweet which gives the fun story behind the big balloons in the Macy’s parade. We’ll also hopefully be reading the Devlins Cranberry Thanksgiving which is a marvelous vintage classic about a cranberry bread recipe and an attempted theft! See you there!

Loud Storytime Tomorrow At Union Ave Books!

It’s going to be a loud storytime tomorrow with another double feature. We’ll be starting off discussing all kinds of loud noises with The Loud Book! by Deborah Underwood and Renata Liwska and then we’ll settle in for a long, wild & crazy narrative about what happens on The Day the Cow Sneezed by James Flora. These are some of my favorite books folks, so don’t miss it tomorrow at 11am at Union Ave Books!
