The Buzz

Lil' Miss Story Hour events place an emphasis on BIPOC authors, is socially conscious, and accessible. The Story Hour features the people and subjects that I want my children to see.

I appreciate the highlights on BIPOC authors and artists. With two kids of our own, we know not all programs teach our kids enough of all the good stuff we'd like them to know. Now, as an adult and parent, I know it's true: the children are our future. (Whitney's in my head now!) Thanks for doing what you do, Lil' Miss Story Hour!
