December 3rd is Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day

Saturday is Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day, which is an absolutely wonderful idea that began in 2010 when Jenny Milchman, a mother an mystery writer wrote a blog post.  Within a month, the idea had gone viral.  Publisher Weekly reported that 80 bookstores participated in 2010.  This year, 150 bookstores plan on participating.  It’s a wonderful opportunity to share the joy of literature with your children, grandchildren, or the children of a friend.

    Thank you so much for your support of the Day, Sheryl! Enjoy tomorrow! Scott, I’ve begun thinking of Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day as a celebration for kids from 1 to 101–so enjoy the time when you can browse for hours for books without any pictures in them–even though the picture book-time is wonderful, too!

    This is a great idea I only wish I had a child to participate in this event. Maybe in a few years time.
