Bring your child's favorite stories to life

Children love to hear the same stories over and over, so why not incorporate storytime into a birthday celebration? Toddlers and preschoolers will enjoy a party based on a classic tale such as “The Very Hungry Caterpillar,” while elementary-age kiddos would love a “Pinkalicious” or “Magic Treehouse” birthday. Add to the fun by giving books as party favors or even having guests bring their favorite picture books to donate to a local shelter.
