A Magical Story Time - Sundays at 11am

June 10, 2018 - 11:00am

Welcome, one and all, to A Magical Story Time! Destined to become the Twin Cities' most fun, most educational, and most magical children's story hour, we invite you to bring your kiddos to Boneshaker's weekly story time with a mission. Held every Sunday from 11 a.m. to noon, your hosts Madeline and Sam will be reading children’s books that shine a spotlight on a wide array of racial and cultural identities, genders, orientations, experiences, and abilities. We want to create a space that places a special emphasis on promoting self love, empathy and a greater understanding of the strange, magical world we inhabit. Before each reading we will have one minute wiggle parties, and coloring pages that correlate with that weeks books.

Why are we holding these weekly story times? Because there is serious deficit in children’s books that depict protagonists who are people of color, people with disabilities, LGBTQIA+ or any combination of the above, so we're dedicating ourselves to seek out books that do just that. Positive representation in books is crucial to a child’s development of a positive self image, and it can be absolutely life affirming for a child to see a protagonist who reflects them accomplishing anything they set their mind to. It is also crucial in developing empathy for a child to experience diversity at a young age.

So come out to A Magical Story Time and experience a story time that celebrates every child for the magical person that they are!
