Thanks Barnes & Nobel for providing a spacious, interesting, and fun place for children to spend time in, especially on a cold, rainy winter day.
It was her first visit to the bookstore and she was thrilled.
I desire that my grandchildren develop a love of books and reading, like their mother's did when they were younger.
The big train set with small wooden, magnetic trains offered her the opportunity to enter the world of "train imagination" time. What a great way to get children to visit a store...free entertainment.
I enjoyed sitting on the chair watching her and wondering where her thoughts were taking her?
Samples were available to play each musical book. I appreciated the fact that she refrained from begging to take one of each, home with her, even though I know that is what she wanted in her heart. And, yes, we did buy a book for her. Time at this bookstore, was a good experience for the two of us. We did read on the large sign, stating that they have weekly story times for children, with little wooden benches included. I told her we would come back some Saturday afternoon, so that she could share in that event.
Just sharing an idea for spending time with little ones that might be in your care.
Thanks for stopping by today.
