[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We all have them. They sit there on our bedside tables, our shelves, our kitchen counters, anywhere they can make a home and they watch us. Taunting. Begging for us to look at them and despair, “Oh man, it’s definitely grown since the last time I looked.” They waste our money. We buy so much to keep them happy and all they do is sit and wait for us to feed them more. Every time we tell ourselves we will wait until they’re truly hungry, until there’s nothing left, then we will feed them again.

We’re really proud to be introducing something we’ve been working on behind the scenes for a wee while now – a brand new, fun and completely FREE storytelling session for children. Aimed at kids between 2-7 (but all very welcome), this session encourages little ones to engage with books and stories, with games that allow them to explore and feel at home in the bookshop, and craft activities too. Every week, our kids’ bookseller will choose and read a story, be it old or new, and there will be 10% off the book – but please don’t feel obliged to purchase! Whilst the kids are being read to, grownups can enjoy a free tea or coffee whilst browsing the books. Each session will last around 30-45 minutes and starts every Sunday at 11am. Check out our Events Calendar and Facebook page regularly to find out what the next book is! We’ll be breaking off Sunday Stories on 11th December to revive in the New Year!
