Storytime With Soho!!!

…there was a magical kingdom ringed with colorful stripes, where laughter rang-out like the chimes of bells, and children and parents, alike, were welcomed to look through the kingdom’s cabinet of curiosities.  Errrr, wait.  Well curated parenting solutions.  And, where all were invited every Tuesday at 4pm to enjoy Storytime with boys and girls of every age.

Everyone loves a good story.  It is through storytelling that cultures keep their traditions alive, and by listening to stories, we not only learn the mores of our cultures, but we also learn the importance of allowing others the opportunity to share.  We invite all boys and girls, and their caregivers, to attend our weekly Storytime every Tuesday at 4pm when the storytelling is always FREE!

Visit giggle in SoHo at 120 Wooster Street between Prince and Spring, and contact us at sohostore@giggle.com or 212-334-5817.
