This morning while reading today's issue of ShelfAwareness I learned about Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day. It's happening December 3, 2011. There are lots of shops in the United States who are already onboard with special activities, and a few in Canada. I'll be contacting my local independent to ensure they are aware of the 'celebration'. Check the link and see what activities your store has planned.
