I don't know if any of you've noticed but October at Green Bean Books has been full of fun events for the whole family- and we're only halfway through the month!
Our regular Tuesday story times continue to be popular and a great way to share some of our favorite new titles. Have you read Jon Klassen's latest book "This is Not My Hat?" It's a hilarious follow up to his bestselling "I Want My Hat Back."
As usual, we've enjoyed having Portland Early Learning Project stop by for our monthly Spanish story time! "Los Gatos Black on Halloween" was the current pick.
Last Monday, I had the pleasure of holding my first in store arts and crafts project teaching people how to make origami jack-o-lanterns. I'm always blown away by how creative kids are!
Of course, the big event we had recently was Wordstock- Portland's annual literary festival. Having attended it the past few years, I've got to say I was impressed by how fun and creative they got during this go around- especially the Little Word area for kids!
Thank you to everyone at Wordstock for doing such a great job- as evidenced by how many people shared with us how much fun they were having! We're already looking forward to next year's!
I want to end this rather lengthy post with a thank you to all our customers who make working at Green Bean so much fun however hectic it may get around here!
We hope to see you in our upcoming events. Happy Reading!
