4th Annual ‘Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day’ to Take Place on December 7th

TakeYourChildToABookstorePosterWebThe 4th annual “Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day” (TCBD) will take place tomorrow, December 7th.

Hundreds of bookstores in the United States, Canada, England, Australia, and Germany will participate in this initiative. Follow this link to view a map of the participating bookstores within the United States.

Here’s more about the initiative: “There are many wonderful organizations that work to foster childhood literacy and a love of reading. TYCBD focuses on an element that is less frequently in the spotlight: the unique pleasure that comes with being in a treasure trove of books, communion and collaboration with a bookseller who has made this their life’s work, and the feeling of investment that comes when a book is discovered and taken home to keep.”
