For three straight weeks, kids are invited to various Atlantic Avenue shops for free storytelling sessions and hot chocolate. The storytellers, all winners of the Atlantic Avenue Children's Literature Contest, will read their own works and also some of their favorite picture books. Participants can choose their favorite original story in the Kids Choice Award voting. The readings kick off at Sahadi's on December 7; see atlanticbid.org for the schedule of readers and readings. Ages 3 to 5.
