Happy Birthday, Dr. King

We had a wonderful story hour at Bank Street Bookstore this morning, thanks to the special occasion that brought us together: the day we honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday. It was a pleasure sharing these titles with many of our youngest listeners and book lovers. All were selected to match Dr. King's wise words; lifelong themes and goals; and attention to respect, responsibility, and love. All are available at Bank Street Bookstore.

"How to Be" by Lisa Brown

"Whoever You Are" by Mem Fox

"Community Soup" by Alma Fullerton

"The Colors of Us" by Karen Katz

"Families" by Shelley Rotner

"Shades of People" by Shelley Rotner

Happy Birthday, A. A. Milne

January 18 is A. A. Milne's birthday so let's all celebrate this writer's most famous creation with ten fun facts about Winnie-the-Pooh: http://mentalfloss.com/article/61099/10-fun-facts-about-winnie-pooh.

Man or Mouse? A Mascot for NYC

Who would you choose from a favorite children's book to represent this wonderful city of ours? Would it be an animal (Lyle the Crocodile or Stuart Little perhaps) or a human (Eloise or Harriet the Spy for example)? Is it even possible to do such a thing, as London seems to have managed by adopting Paddington Bear? Take a look at a few suggested candidates in this recent article in the New York Times and see if you agree with some of the choices: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/16/nyregion/seeking-a-paddington-bear-for....

Surprise!

Mallory and Chelsea are now at Bank Street Bookstore Wednesdays at 3:00 p.m. as well as Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m.! Come enjoy stories and songs.

Shop Around the Corner

A group of students from Bank Street School for Children visited Bank Street Bookstore today as part of their study of community. Teachers Claire Mansfield and Emma Marks guided the conversation so well that the six- and seven-year-olds asked thoughtful questions about how the bookstore is managed, how it makes money, and why it is such an important part of the neighborhood community. Thanks to the entire class for being good thinkers and listeners.

 

New Year Highlight

The Barnard Toddler Center is the first step in a child's school experience. While children play, grown-ups supervise and support the kind of developmentally appropriate learning that takes place every day. Since Bank Street Bookstore is a close neighbor, it made sense when director Tovah Klein approached us about a book drive for Hunts Point Alliance for Children in the South Bronx. As a result of working together to provide access to books for kids attending the Hunts Point program, many bags of books were collected and donated to this outstanding resource for kindergarten readiness. Teacher Rachel Flax picked up the books this week with the help of Bank Street Bookstore's own Peter Soter, both pictured below. Thanks to all who contributed!
