Do you remember sitting on the carpet in front of your teacher in first grade? You had the nicest teacher, the best storyteller, the one who put the right emphasis at exactly the right spot because she’d been reading these stories to children for years, but all you knew was that she had a gentle voice, and she smelled pretty, and when she read you a story, you were there. We always called them magic carpet stories. That is the atmosphere I’m striving for here. While not all our storytimes will involve happy endings (or, as mentioned previously, endings at all), that feeling of getting away, of being a part of it, of being welcomed and embraced into the magic is what we look for here.
And so I could use your help. Input, thoughts, suggestions, questions… all are welcome. Stop by in the comments, or shoot me an email at kat(dot)morrissette(at)gmail.com. I look forward to leading you all in our very first Magic Carpet Story. Gather round, boys and girls!
