We're big proponents of reading to our kids, and historical celebrations give us all lots of opportunities to educate our children through the art of storytelling. This week, we've made a list of our favorite stories to read to your children during Black History Month. We think these are the perfect books to share history with young kids, and we'll be featuring some of these titles during our story times in Midtown.
Children's author Emilie Buchwald once said, "Children are made readers on the laps of their parents." We couldn't agree more.

I take birthdays very seriously, and my own is no exception to the rule. I'll be turning 27 this Saturday, so I've compiled my very own Bookshelf wish list. Yes, it's a list of my current store favorites, but it's also a guide to finding the perfect way to say "happy birthday" to those you love.
(And in case you've got your own celebrating to do this weekend, we're offering 10% off your entire purchase on Saturday in Midtown... if you remember to say "happy birthday" to yours truly.)

2 -Where'd You Go, Bernadette. This has been on my to-read list for a while; I think it's time to finally take the plunge.
