Storymakery’s “Author Reading & Writing Workshop” is an amazing monthly event that is great for children 4 years of age and older. Kids will have the great opportunity to listen to a real author read a story and ask questions about the book or the writing process.
AKA Our fun night out and a visit to Storymakery. I really enjoyed how her and I were able to work together to create the story. The tools are simple enough to use; but, most fun when done in collaboration. My daughter said her favorite part was making her own book. I can validate that, simply by the look of excitement on her face when she held the finished product in her hand!!!
One of the activities my wife and I like to do from time to time is spend an evening with each child one on one. With that in mind on Friday night, my daughter and I had a planned activity. Trying to figure out an activity that is fun, educational and unique was my focus for the week prior to our night out. Fortunately for me, I was given an opportunity to visit Storymakery at Irvine Spectrum.

Storymakery is a place for kids to come in, create a story and leave with a real book they’ve written. The shop caters to ages 4-12 and accepts walk-in customers and organized groups. Younger ones get help with story prompts and typing, and older kids (and a few stray adults as well) create their own stories of mermaids and monsters and robots. Anyone suffering writer’s block can visit Imagination Forest, part of the store where the leaves on the trees have story prompts such as “Today I am small: One day your character shrinks to the size of a cricket. What are their silly and dangerous encounters?”
