I had so much fun reading story hour at Hyde Park Books on December 7th! I will be back to read, my own book this time, with four other local authors this Saturday.

I am also giving away an 18×24 Imagination poster! The illustration is one of my favorite illustrations in Mama’s Purse 🙂

Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day

“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. In the future, whether you download your story or pluck a volume off a shelf, a bookstore will be able to accommodate. But in order for bookstores to flourish and thrive, we must expose future generations to the unique pleasures they offer. On December 7th, 2013, take a child in your life to a bookstore. Watch his face light up as you give him free access, not just to a new book, but to tomorrow.” —Jenny Milchman, Founder of Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day

I am excited to participate in Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day this Saturday at Hyde Park Books. I am reading my very first story hour at a bookstore! And I get to decide what to read! What are your favorite children’s books? I’d like to have a nice variety to read to the kiddos 🙂

I think Hyde Park Books is doing something pretty cool for this special occasion: A children’s/YA book exchange. In honor of Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day, Saturday Dec 7th they will be hosting a book exchange all day. So, bring a book, and you can select another used children’s/young adult book for free! That’s right, free!

So, come exchange those old stories for some new ones!

Monster Bash at Hyde Park Books

Hyde Park is my favorite neighborhood in Boise. There’s an old school ice cream shop, an amazing park, great restaurants with patios, and the coolest little book shop: Hyde Park Books. I took my kids to the Monster Bash at Hyde Park Books yesterday and we had a blast! They enjoyed making crafts, eating candy, and reading books.
