free storytimes houston

You can only read so many books with an eager new reader, and sometimes it’s nice to let someone else tell the story! Free and cheap storytimes in Houston are also a simple way to get out of the house and socialize, especially when you have younger children not in school. Just be sure to check the age groups accepted and make sure your kiddo won’t be out of place.

Here’s the ultimate guide to Houston storytimes throughout the week, so you can work a good story into any day of the week. We try to keep this list as updated as possible, adding new groups and events when we find out about them, but you may want to double-check that the event is happening that day before you make the trip.
