Phoenix visits the Scholastic bookstore and HousingWorks bookstore cafe

Yes, we found a new story time in the city!

We stopped by story time at the Scholastic bookstore in SoHo and it's a REAL story time!! Singing and jumping is fun but I also like a real story time. No sing-a-longs, no jumping on mommy's knee, unless your baby wants to while he/she listens to the story. This place is a true story time, all about reading and 4-5 books were read by a very enthusastic reader! There were little babies, like Phoenix, and older toddlers like 3-4 years old. And the kids DO sit through the story time, of course there are some whines and cries and all that but the story time at the Scholastic bookstore also proved: babies can sit through story time and have the ability to listen and enjoy it. Although Phoenix was sleepy and slept through most of it, I was glad we came because it proved to be a great story time to tell you about! The store is huge and colorful and there LOTS and LOTS of books, the layout is fun and festive and it's a great experience to visit with your baby.
Daily story time 11 a.m. Tuesday, Weds, Thurs.
557 Broadway (Between Prince & Spring Streets

Know someone having a baby? THIS IS A GREAT GIFT! The gift of reading with your baby with these adorable book packages.

We bought: Clifford The Big Red Dog and the Scholastic book Five Shiny Stars.

Then we went to the HousingWorks bookstore cafe over on Crosby street. I was happy to find out the store has a children's section and we picked up Waddle by Rufus Butler Seder and right on the table I saw Dr. Seuss's Foot Book too! It was cute to see a mother with her son right there in the Children's books area reading and discovering new books at a great price!

Check out HousingWorks Bookstore's storytime! Every Wednesday at 10:30AM, songs and stories for tots 0–3 & their caretakers, $5 per family

Go on a story time adventure, make a memory and discover great books!
