Story times with a twist (various dates)

February 1, 2010

The next Stages St. Louis storytelling session happens Wednesday (Feb. 3) with an appropriate book: 1*2*3 Valentine’s Day. If you’d like to bring your preschooler or early elementary student to see the 45-minute interactive Stories @ Stages performance and drama opportunity, you need to sign up in advance by calling 636.530.5959 or e-mailing your name, phone number (in case of inclement weather), the number of people attending and the date and time (either 10:15 a.m. or 1:15 p.m.)

The first Wednesday of each month through May brings a new story at the Stages Performing Arts Academy in Chesterfield. Remaining dates are listed on the homepage.

If you can’t make it to the Stages story time, here are a couple of other good options for somewhat out-of-the-ordinary readings:

  • Stories in the Greenhouse at The Green Center, for nature stories illuminated by sunset and, later on, candlelight in the Geodome. The next one is Sunday (Feb. 7) from 6:30-7:30 p.m.; others are Feb. 21 and 28. All ages are welcome, and there’s a nominal $2 per-person fee. To sign up in advance (required), call 314-725-8314 x105.
  • The Teachers’ Lounge in South County has themed half-hour sessions, Mondays and Thursdays at 10:30 a.m., with activities focused on early literacy skills for ages 2 to 6. To sign up (recommended), click the link on the calendar for the date you’ll be attending or call 314-894-7000.

This week’s theme at The Teachers’ Lounge is Groundhog Day, and I’m truly hoping those little critters across the country give us the “spring is near” omen.  I’m ready for it!
