In honor of Children’s Book Week we’re inviting you to take 20% off any one children’s book until Monday, May 14th! Just print the image to the left and bring it in to either store. Reading with your children not only fosters your relationship, but it develops your child’s abilities to narrate and organize the world. We have both classics like Dr. Seuss and new classics like Knuffle Bunny a cautionary tale by Mo Willems (with musical CD included).
