Coffee Tots is a drop-in cafe located in the City Arcade. Our vision is for Coffee Tots to provide a place of safety where parents/carers can come and relax with young children, meet others and receive additional support. It is our priority to encourage parents to play, read and engage with their children, helping to improve the parent/child relationship as well as the child’s development. We run craft and cooking activities, story and rhyme times, puppet shows and have out lots of toys to play with. We are keen to encourage children’s learning whilst they make friends and play. This is why here at Coffee Tots we are delighted to be taking part in Literally Coventry Book Festival. We hope that by having a visiting author to the cafe the families who visit might be inspired to explore reading. It will be nice for the children to hear a visitor read new stories with new characters and illustrations. This promises to be an exciting opportunity for them to enjoy using their imaginations and get a flair for books and reading. Hopefully the festival will also help to encourage parents to read for their own enjoyment and promote storytimes at home.
We look forward to taking part.
