Storytimes are one of the most entertaining and enriching activities you can share with your child. A love for reading helps your child to excel at school and increases their attention span. Plus, the time you spend together strengthens your connection. Here are 5 of the best children’s story times in Houston.
Houston Public Library: Your public library is a great resource for story times and all kinds of family fun and education. To make it even more helpful, the programs are broken down by age group, and some programs are offered in Spanish. If your child loves puppies, they can read to trained therapy dogs from Pawsitive Pups who visit the Levy Park branch on the second Sunday of each month.
Discovery Green: This 12 acre downtown park is home to a very special story time with music and character visits. You’re encouraged to bring a new or gently used book each week that you can trade for a new title to take home. You’re also asked to arrive early because the Toddler Tuesdays fun starts promptly at 10:30 am.
Nature Discovery Center: You and your little one will enjoy the weekly Nature Story Time and Craft sessions for children ages 2 to 5. The reading is supplemented by activities like nature walks and live animal demonstrations at this popular nature center in nearby Bellaire. It’s all happening each Wednesday afternoon at 4 pm.
Children’s Museum of Houston: For working parents who can’t get to weekday story hours, there are free family nights at the Children’s Museum of Houston. Enjoy exhibits and performances along with interactive storytelling at 5:15, 6 and 7 pm each Thursday.
Merry Makers: For all busy parents who may need to combine dinner time and story time, check out Merry Makers. They offer free story times complete with face painting at various restaurants in the Houston area. You can also book them for private parties.
