Hello, Friend! It’s so nice to meet you.

My name is Tanya Bee, and I love stories.

I love reading stories, writing stories, watching stories, hearing stories, and most of all I love sharing stories with wonderful friends just like you!

So grab your favourite grown-up, find a comfy place to sit and let’s read a story together, shall we?

And if you have a story you want to share, please send it my way. Your stories are the ones I love most of all!

Tanya Bee is an independent storytime reader with a heart for kiddos in the early stages of life (and a background in children’s library programming.) She supports tender-hearted caregivers, just like you 😊, in connecting deeply with their littles by sharing the magic, joy, sweetness and comfort that stories have to offer.
