Kaltreider-Benfer Storytimes

There is an indescribable delight when a child first discovers words. It blossoms from the magical combination of a book's pictures, colors and the rhythmical, soothing sound of a parent reading words to a snuggling child.

We believe in reading to your child from the very beginning and we are here to help!
