Building literacy one children's book at a time…

Treasure Hunt Sale!

So I’m feeling really guilty about not posting here in a long while… Life has been busy and good! I’ve been a little focused on my local business, not to mention family life and my day job!

To celebrate back-to-school, I will be highlighting some books that are on sale on my website, but these are not necessarily advertised so it’s a bit of a treasure hunt!

I’ve already started sharing some of these on my Facebook page and will be sharing them there first so be sure to like my page, if you don’t already.

First up is…. drum roll, please…

Asia Box Set for ONLY $14.99!

(That’s less than the regular price for ONE book!)

This set includes 4 hardcover books that retail for $15.99 each for a total value of $63.80, plus a cute gift box! The set normally retails for $24.99 (already a bargain!), but I think we are closing these out so get yours before they’re gone forever!

I will highlight more books over the coming days/weeks on Facebook, but if you can’t wait or if you want to order all at once to save on shipping, you can view the back-to-school flyer here.

Also, be sure to click on the Internet Only Specials to get even more books on sale.

If you purchase $40 or more, you will be eligible for Customer Specials too!

I know. So many RULES and things to remember! But isn’t that what back-to-school is all about??

Happy reading!! Enjoy the savings…

PS: While We Were Out (included in this set) is one of our favorite books! It’s about a bunny that has adventures inside the house while everyone is away, but there’s a surprising little twist at the end…

Promoting Literacy: My Own Book

Here’s an uplifting article in the WSJ about a retired lawyer who started the My Own Book program. My Own Book volunteers take disadvantaged 3rd graders to a bookstore to purchase $50 in books each. For many of the children, this is their first visit to a bookstore. After the books are purchased, the children perform skits, read aloud, and build dioramas. Program evaluations show that 92% of the children read more at home after getting their own books. Such a great program – we need this in all cities!

Owning Books vs. Library Card

This is such a great guest blog post by Read Aloud Dad… I really like how he points out that owning books and owning a library card are so different and don’t really overlap that much – BOTH are important!

Thanks Read Aloud Dad!
