Hi again! We’re still thinking about the lovely Saturday morning we had last week with Lake Pajamas and A Raven’s Nest. The King Street store kicked off its launch of the new children’s space and selection with a reading of A Raven’s Nest with artist and author Raven Roxanne. It was a perfect celebration of fun and color!
The beautiful and vibrant ballooned storefront was a happy introduction to the new chapter of the store as well as Raven’s book and the nests she and little ones built together. 🌈✨
Lake Pajamas brought in local treats from Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit and balloon artists to add to the fun of the sunny morning. Kiddos set down balloon baby dolls and tasty cinnamon biscuits to make their own vibrant drawings with Raven before the reading! 🎈🎈🎈
They couldn’t wait to show everyone their favorite colors and how they weaved them into their own creative works.
This beautiful reading nook was so beautiful and light! 🌞 It was the perfect cozy space for everyone to nestle in and listen to Raven’s storytelling (and admire the adorable plush puppies and pastel-striped pajamas). With the flip of each page, young readers were so excited to share their thoughts and identify the animals and plants that were on their own familiar beaches! 🏖️
Sometimes we just need a closer look to explore— we love this little one’s engagement and curiosity!
After joining her readers for a bright crayon-fueled nest-making art activity, Raven sat down to talk about her book. She autographed all of them and shared her love for one of her favorite pages of A Raven’s Nest with lavender prints of the conch shell! 🐚🌊 What a perfect way to kick off our summer!
We’re so happy to have celebrated with Lake Pajamas’ as they introduced their amazing new space. The morning was filled with a lot of creative, happy energy between the excitement of the store and the love for A Raven’s Nest.
See ya soon— and don’t forget to keep up with our summer on Instagram! ✨
