Storytime at Barnes & Noble

Maya and I went to storytime at one of our local Barnes & Noble stores on Saturday at 5 p.m. They advertised having a special Halloween storytime.

A lovely witch read Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak while her co-worker, dressed as Max, said his lines from the story.

Maya didn't wear a Halloween costume, though quite a few kids did. She accepted her paper crown, like the one Max has in the book, quite happily, though she didn't participate in the "rumpus" (think musical chairs with pieces of paper on the floor in place of chairs) or the parade through the story.

Maya hadn't been to a bookstore in a long time, so, of course, I just had to buy her three books and a couple of bookmarks!

We had fun, and I'm glad Maya is feeling better.

I'm sure we'll be at The Polar Express storytime in December, too. . . .
