Pottery Barn Kids' Storytime

It's been raining for a couple of days now, so C and I were looking for an indoor activity yesterday. Sarah C. and I had previously compiled a list of all the storytimes, so I took a look. Since it was a Tuesday, and since Southpoint is always a good place to spend some rainy day time, we went to the Pottery Barn Kids' Storytime.

This was so cute. Besides the fact that I want to live in a Pottery Barn store, the storytime was really sweet. It was short, 20 minutes maximum. But it was classic. All of the children sat in little chairs or on the floor with their parents. A staff member sat on a chair in front of the kids. And I knew it was going to be a successful storytime when the first book pulled out was Llama Llama Red Pajama. This is one of C's favorite books, and apparently he is not alone. There were gasps of excitement all over the room.

After reading the first book, we sang Wheels on the Bus, If You're Happy and You Know It, and the Alphabet Song. The second book was cute, too, but didn't hold the interest of the kids nearly as well. Still, the staff member did a good job trying to get the kids involved.

Then we were done. Short, sweet, but successful.

This storytime was really well attended, and at the end I figured out why. Kids get a little passport book. For each storytime they come to, they get a stamp in their book. Children love it because, well, who doesn't love a stamp in their passport? Parents love it because after 5 stamps you get a $10 gift card at PBKids. I mean, if you are going to the mall anyways, why not go Tuesdays at 11?

Pairs nicely with a stop at the Kidszone and/or Cheesecake Factory.
