Boogie Down Books brings story time to the South Bronx

Posted: Updated:
MOTT HAVEN -

One organization is bringing books back to the South Bronx.

Boogie Down Books is hosting a free story time with parents and their children at Mottley Kitchen in Mott Haven every Saturday.

The group calls themselves a book store without walls since they don't actually have a physical location. Instead, they partner with different businesses and organizations around the community.

Children who attend are able to read along or do the reading themselves.

Rebekah Shoaf, the owner and founder of Boogie Down Books says they hope to bring together lots of families together and get children excited about books.

She also says story time has become a regular Saturday routine for many families.
