Rise + Rhyme is not your typical kids’ activity and it may be the kids’ activity you’ve been looking for. Hosted at Busboys and Poets Hyattsville location, Rise & Rhythm is a music and story time that offers as much for children as it does for adults.
Rise + Rhyme is held on Mondays from 9:30 to 11am and is designed for children five and under. The program starts off with a performance by a singer, including favorites The Singing Lizard and Mr. Gabe, followed by the reading of books by a Busboys & Poets employee. Caregivers are welcome to join their children on the floor or sit at a table.
Busboys and Poets has done a great job of creating an atmosphere that is welcoming to both children and adults. The program has attracted many regulars. Busboys and Poets also has a delicious food, much of which is kid-friendly. I plan on returning very soon to watch my little one have a ball while I sit and enjoy relatively relaxed meal before joining in on the fun. I only hope that Busboys & Poets will bring Rise & Rhyme to some of its other locations soon!
