At Storytime Phoenix we nurture children's natural tendencies to connect with all aspects of life and encourage them to embrace a multi-ethnic worldview.
We hold fast to the truth that diversity exists within every species on the planet, birds, trees, flowers; etc and humans are no different. We believe that children posses this understanding innately and are beautiful reminders that "differences" strengthen our commonalities. It's our hope that by reinforcing this great truth during their early stages of development, as children are becoming the leaders of tomorrow, they will have a personal stake in preserving and protecting the common threads of humanity that unite us all.
We are delighted at the opportunity to serve. See you soon!!! – Phoenix Hawkins
