A Children’s Place – Portland, OR

June 3, 2009

Special “Summer Thursday” events are planned all summer long (6/18-8/27) at A Children’s Place located at 4807 NE Fremont St in Portland, OR. At 1 pm each Thursday the store will host fun and artsy activities. See Summer Thursday at ACP on the main page of the store.

A Children’s Place Bookstore Story Time! meets every Thursday morning, 10:30-11:00. Parents and little ones are welcome for warm cheer and wonderful storytelling.

Some of the photo/drawings in my book Grandpa, Do It! I Do It, Too! are from the Portland area – because that is where Austin, the grandson in the book, lives!

Once Upon A Story Books

June 2, 2009

Last Sunday Uncle Jake told us about his Storytelling at Once Upon A Story Books as their last storyteller at that location in Belmont Shore in Long Beach, CA. I am sorry to hear they are closing – because I can walk there!) but their website says they will reopen – with their on-line store still going in the meantime.

Uncle Jake deserves his own paragraph and I will do so properly soon. Here is his Mother’s Day wish

One of the photo/drawings in my book Grandpa, Do It! I Do It, Too! is from the Belmont Shore/Alamitos Bay area and one is from the Seal Beach beach at the pier, which is not far from Belmont Shore.
