Who knew there was a national push to take your child to a bookstore? Well, the bookstores, apparently. To quote Jenny Milchman, the head of this endeavor,
Bookstores hold a place in the hearts and times of our community. They are places to discover an author, a story, a life. Nothing affords the conversation and interaction among books and book lovers that a bookstore does.
So, this Saturday, grab your favorite kid(s) and hunker down at the spot you love most.
If you’re anywhere near Decatur Square (Georgia, of course), the Little Shop of Stories is the way to go. Plan to be there around 11 to celebrate Chanukah with some songs, dreidels, and a reading of Baxter, The Pig Who Wanted to Be Kosher by BGB favorite Laurel Snyder. Pick up a holiday favorites guide, sign up for some super fun holiday events, and if you’re feeling groovy, buy a book!
If wonderful little bookstores are not your thing, head over to your local Borders. This weekend Borders is offering a $15 gift card to the school of your choice through DonorsChoose.org if you purchase anything.
GET YOUR BOOK ON!
