Storytime & A Craft @ Once upon a Storybook
Apr 25 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Once upon a Storybook has regularly scheduled Preschool storytimes and a “Milk & Cookies” (PJ) storytime every week. They also have special events and/or author’s readings on a monthly basis.

I’ve been to other children’s book stores but this has a different feel to it. There is something special about this place; maybe it’s the friendly and knowledgeable staff or perhaps the fairies who have taken up residency here (be sure to look for the fairy door) – either way this place feels homey and magically. Once upon a Storybook will definitely become one of our “regular” spots.

  • Preschool Storytime: Tuesdays @11:00 or Fridays @11:00   Join us for songs, stories, and surprises at one of these two weekly identical storytimes!  Sometimes we do experiments, sometimes we make crafts–There’s always something fun when we get the preschoolers together!  Perfect for ages 2-5
  • Milk & Cookies Storytime: Thursdays @7:00  Hear some quiet stories to relax you after a busy day.  Milk & cookies provided (if your child has food sensitivities, please bring an appropriate snack.)  Great for ages 3-8.

Once upon a Storybook is located at the Enderle Shopping Center, 17300 E. 17th St, #C Tustin, CA 92780. Call (714) 669-4377 if you have any questions about upcoming events or hours.
