StoryTime Series

Bella is partnering with Village Exchange Center in Aurora, CO and Second Star on the Right in Denver, CO to provide a family StoryTime series.


Once a month, a StoryTime session will be held at Village Farms at Stanley Marketplace. The diverse library of books is centered around important historical, or emotionally powerful stories, and the contributions to music, art, agriculture and more by these marginalized groups:.


  • Blacks, Indigenous people, People of Color (BIPOC)

  • Latinos, Asian and Pacific Islanders 

  • Refugees

  • Immigrants

  • Forgotten historical figures, especially women

Throughout the readings, we will guide discussions using CASEL’s Social Emotional Learning (SEL) framework. We will allow participants to express their own thoughts using deep listening skills and making connections between the books and lived experiences. 


History is about exposure to the world, outside of our own bubbles, and the positive connections we can make with others simply by learning about them. By sharing our stories and listening to others' experiences we create a more well-rounded lens in which to view the world. We feel this story-time series will provide just that, a space where children and families feel heard and represented, while simultaneously learning about new people, places, and ways of life.
