The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

I Am Every Good Thing

Saturday, September 5 • 10:30 am • Facebook Live

This week, Ms. Dearsha will read a powerful and timely brand new book,

I Am Every Good Thing   by Derrick Barnes and Gordon C. James, creators of Crown: An Ode to the Fresh Cut. The confident Black narrator of this book is proud of everything that makes him who he is. He's got big plans, and no doubt he'll see them through--as he's creative, adventurous, smart, funny, and a good friend. Sometimes he falls, but he always gets back up. And other times he's afraid, because he's so often misunderstood and called what he is not. So slow down and really look and listen, when somebody tells you--and shows you--who they are. There are superheroes in our midst!

Where's Waldo?

July 1 thru August 31

Looking for a free family-friendly activity that also supports your local neighborhood bookstore? 


Come on in to Story & Song and pick up an image of Waldo that you can color and cut out. Then take a photo of Waldo, doing whatever he's doing: cleaning house, hiding in a bookstore, walking a dog. Share your photo on social media, tagging @storyandsongbb, #FindWaldoLocal, and #WheresWaldo.


After this promotion ends on August 31st, we'll award a $25 gift card to the most creative entry!

Book Hugs is a special program created by Story & Song Bookstore Bistro. You can nurture the young readers in your life by giving the gift of a wrapped book periodically. Complete the form here, and we'll take care of the rest.

Join The "Read Together Be Together" Literacy Movement

READ TOGETHER, BE TOGETHER is a nationwide movement developed by Penguin Random House in partnership with Parents magazine that celebrates the importance, and power, of the shared reading experience between an adult and a child. Reading aloud regularly to babies and young children is one of the most effective ways to foster early literacy and is a key factor responsible for building language and social skills.
