Storytime, Green Bean Books, Portland, Oregon
Story time is just fun. I just pretend like I’m reading to my kid. I have so much fun doing it. I do love music too, so I always try to do musical story times.
I’ve worked in quite a few bookstores, and this is the best one I’ve ever worked in. Everything is just so carefully curated, much more than Powell’s, more than any other place. We have to be, because we’re tiny.
I don’t use this word lightly—it’s magical. It’s very magical. Children love it. Parents love it. I have never seen anybody unhappy here. It’s really a special place. It sounds cliché, but it’s true.
