Pentwater is a small town on the shore of Lake Michigan. And on the corner is a little store called Storybook Village, a place where exploration and creativity are encouraged through award-winning books, art, storytelling treasures and gifts.

Margaret Baker had the chance recently to read her children’s book, When I was a Girl I Dreamed, at one of the Storybook Village story times. While we were there, we spoke with owners Barbara and Tom Sims. We wanted hear about their dreams for Storybook Village.
