Revels World Story Time

Bring your kid(s) to hear Revelers read stories from all over the world!

Join us as we explore the magical, diverse world of children’s literature. We’ll journey through books old and new, from different countries and unique cultures — all delightful for kids of any age (but aimed at the 3-7 year-old set).

Enjoy stories such as The Mitten adapted by Jan Brett from Ukraine, Pettson and Findus series by Sven Nordqvist from Sweden, Crucita and Her Piggy Bank by Aurora R. G. de Braniff from Mexico, Cat in Search of a Friend by Meshack Asare from Ghana, The Umbrella Thief by Sybil Wettasinghe from Sri Lanka, and The Flower City by Eveline Hasler from Switzerland. 

Plus, hear folktales from Japan, China, India, Iran, Persia, and more!

Check out our Revels Family Book Club for more advanced readers to share and discuss stories about young people throughout the world.

We will read on the first Tuesday of each month from 10:30 am-11:30 am. It’s open-house style, come whenever you like and stay as long as you like! Email Jo Rasi at with any questions or book recommendations.

Story Time will return in September!
