The second annual Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day is set for Saturday, December 3, 2011.
Last summer author Jenny Milchman and her family set out on a cross-country trek, with a twist. Spreading the word about Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day, they visited some 60 independent bookstores from northern New Jersey to Portland, Ore. "My kids now think a summer vacation that doesn't involve books isn't a real summer vacation at all," said Milchman.
Participating bookstores from more than 35 states, two Canadian provinces, England, and this year, even the Gold Coast of Australia, have joined in to encourage bringing a child to a bookstore. Find a bookstore near you at this interactive link.
