Child’s Play! August 26, 2018 – Posted in: Uncategorized

Dear Friends,

I hope this summer has involved quality time with the kiddos in your life. We can’t wait for the nursery school to be back in session so we can see our little friends and their amazing parents. In the meantime, we’ve been working on the kids section of our website. Check it out here! It’s already back-to-school time, soon it will be Halloween, then Thanksgiving, then CHRISTMAS, and our new Stocking Stuffer Bar (because the Easter Basket Bar was such a hit with local moms — spread the word!). Fall is going to be a blur, so here are a few suggestions for all the birthdays, babies, and bar mitzvahs in your life!

With summertime love,

Becky and Team Bookstore
