We are very pleased to welcome Tonya Sullivan as one of our new Story Time readers. She'll be reading 1-2 stories every third Saturday of the month from noon to 12:30. When asked to provide a brief bio, this is what she had to say about herself:

"I was born in Tucson AZ. Raised in Utah. Married 43 years with 4 grown sons and 12 grandchildren.

I taught preschool for 30 years and loved every minute of it.

Reading books and telling stories was my favorite part of the day. No matter how small or tall we are, books can teach us, comfort us, and make us smile.

I look forward to meeting many new friends at The Book Bungalow."


And we look forward to her monthly Story Time gatherings, as well. We hope you'll choose to bring your little ones for Story Time with Miss Tonya every third Saturday of the month.
