About Storytime

Who we are

Hi! We’re Brandi and Jared, the wife-and-husband team behind Storytime.

Over the last 13 years, we’ve been passionate about helping those in our community — tutoring low-income and homeless students, as well as mentoring older youth in foster care. Through these opportunities, we've learned a lot about child development and grew a strong appreciation for how critical the first few years of life are for human development.

Our mission

Deliver the best children’s books that encourage social-emotional learning, help children process major life events, and are a delight to read.

Why Storytime matters

Research shows that developing social-emotional skills in early childhood improves a wide range of outcomes — from improved performance in educational settings to better economic outcomes and even improved long-term mental and physical health. These skills lay the foundation for a fulfilling life. Further, study after study highlights how stories boosts brain development, improves language and cognitive skills, and teaches complex concepts, helping children understand their world. That’s why so many of us read to our children almost every night.

Our hope

We want Storytime to be a tool for you to get great children’s books to talk about what’s happening in your child’s life. Every child and day is different. Storytime lets you have a bookshelf that constantly refreshes to evolve with your child, without having to search high and low for great books. Let us do that for you.

Thanks for stopping by

We’re excited to share Storytime with you. We’d love for you to join the Storytime community, or we’re happy to answer any questions you have. Email us any time at hello@getstorytime.com.
