Last Friday I was following the Tweets of Mr. Schu’s crazy 800 mile adventure to celebrate Indies First Storytime. I decided that I would look to see if I could take my kids on our own little adventure to celebrate Indies First Storytime.
On Saturday morning, I loaded the kids up in our ol’ minivan and headed to Bookbug in Kalamazoo to celebrate with them.
We arrived a few minutes before the event. The kids had on their game faces.

One of the featured authors for the event was Jesse Klausmeier. We loved listening to her read Open This Little Book.
Be still my heart! Jesse called Dharia up front to help her turn the pages.
After Jesse’s reading we got a chance to listen to the amazing Sarah Stewart talk about her masterpiece The Gardener.
Then it was time to head outside and plant flowers in front of Bookbug.
Indies First Storytime was AMAZING! I hope it becomes an annual event!
