Story Time!


A reading of The Cat in the Hat at Barnes & Noble Booksellers at Kahala Mall. The store offers free story times every Friday at 11 a.m., and on select Saturdays with costumed character appearances. 

 

Parents, how many times have you read Green Eggs and Ham? Five hundred? Five million? Me too. (I can recite it here or there; I can recite it anywhere. And in a house and with a mouse, and on a boat and with a goat.) And my kids will seemingly never tire of it. My point is, sometimes it’s nice to let someone else do the talking. Here on Oahu, there’s at least one free story time every day of the week – check out our list to find one near you.
