Wild Rumpus Sensory-Friendly Story Time

WildRumpusLogoSecond Thursday of each month
9:30-10 a.m.

Wild Rumpus Bookstore
2720 West 43rd St.
Minneapolis, MN 55410

Sensory-Friendly Story Time will take place before the store opens to the general public. No music until after the store opens...except for the songs we'll sing together! Small fidget objects will be available for children to hold if they choose. There will be a clear schedule for story time with visual cues. As with all of our story times, this is a no judgement zone! We all have unique needs and ways of expressing ourselves, and we at Wild Rumpus welcome and celebrate those differences. Cost: FREE. Click here for more information.
