Houston's Coolest Storytimes for Kids You Won't Find at Your Local Library

Libraries are by far the most well-recognized home to baby and toddler storytimes, bringing in hundreds of kids each week to gather 'round the familiar storybook circle. However, Houston is home to a variety of unique storytime sessions as well, bringing the traditional book reading sessions to unique environments that spice up story sessions. From afternoon storytimes at Bellaire's Nature Discovery Center to special storytimes during the ever popular weekly Free Family Night at the Children's Museum of Houston, these reading sessions are as unique as their locations and are sure to foster a love of reading in kids of all ages.
