We had two wonderful story times here at Little in the month of June. We will be taking a break from story time during July + August to make more space for summer fun + will resume sometime in September. It's been such a fun year of reading to all of our little friends. I wanted to finish off the season with two story + craft themes that I had been so excited to share.

Here at Little, we try our best every day to care for the earth. We carry eco-friendly brands like Mini Rodini + Naturepedic whenever possible. We use green cleaning products, repurpose supplies during our story times +, of course, we recycle! We want to encourage earth consciousness in our little customers as well, so it was obvious that we needed to host an Earth Day story time!

Little Story Time

Spring.. In Like a Lion.

When I planned a kite themed story time for mid-March, I was hoping for a little sun, snow melting into puddles + fleece jacket weather. When I realized that Portland would be covered in a fresh blanket of snow during this particular Saturday, I decided to stick with the theme anyway, because I'm more than ready for spring + some outdoor play. This story + craft time really got me in the spirit, + I hope it got our little friends ready for warmer weather as well!

It seemed only a matter of time before we celebrated our favorite creatures with their very own story + craft time

Books that span the seasons + bring beauty to even a dark time of year.

This week's story time was a good lesson in 'playing it by ear.' I'll hit you with the original concept - I planned to read some books about the seasons + then read The Story Orchestra which is a gorgeous, musical book by Jessica Courtney-Tickle that plays Vivaldi's The Four Seasons when you press on each page. This was then going to lead into a musical craft time.
