Wouldn’t you love to cuddle up with your dearlings to read them a story?

This is your invitation to enter the magical world of Our Cozy Time

Reading a bedtime story by Tamara BrennanTake your children through the shimmering rainforest on the wings of a butterfly. Follow a puppy as he opens the music that was locked in his human friend’s heart. Would you like to see who comes to the rescue of tiny Bush Baby when he falls out of his tree in Botswana?

Our Cozy Time Story Club is an offering of love created to make it easy for you to delight the children in your life with beautiful stories they will cherish. Each month you’ll receive an original story by email.

I am a poet, mommy, psychologist and visionary living in the high country in Central America. My stories have been extensively field tested with the Fairy Princess and our friends, both small and large. My inspirations comes when my own beloved child says “Mom, tell me a story.”

Our lives have become so fast paced and electronically wired that it can be a challenge to organize the special time that children need to thrive. 

Whether you are a busy parent, homeschooling family, grandparent, day care provider, teacher or special friend, let me make it easy for you to create wonderful memories together.  I will send you the stories, all you will need to do is call your dearests to your side to share warmth, giggles and closeness with you.

What could be better than that? Oh… Niki says having cookies and hot cocoa along with the story might do it.

Mary Gilbert Reading with Grandson Nathan

“Dear Tamara, It would have done your heart good to see what just happened downstairs. Nathan had his father read the Janette story aloud at the computer, and they printed it out. Next they punched holes in the paper and started a binder for the stories. The first page is the certificate. Just now, Nathan was on his knees on the floor with the notebook open in front of him, reading the story aloud with full expression! It’s a big hit.” Mary Gilbert, Quaker Earthcare Witness
