If you go to the website, you can check out all the progress there’s been on Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day.
New stores (and states) added every morning this week.
We’re in Saskatchewan now. Mississippi, too. Both coasts. And a lot of places in between.
This is all thanks to booksellers, bloggers, and book lovers. During this long, slow slog of a submission it has buoyed me immensely to see how many people care about books–and are excited by them.
So, where will you spend Saturday December 4th?
I’ll be at Watchung booksellers with my kids, my dear friend, and her kids. There will be puppet making, a book signing, treats–and maybe an impromptu discussion with the children about what they love about stories and stores.
Bookstores, that is.
Thanks for celebrating with us!
