Friends and Neighbors

Second graders from the School at Columbia visited Bank Street Book Store to learn about book buying, book selling, and the importance of books in our lives. These young readers asked many interesting questions about the book biz, including, "How many books are usually in the book store at any one time?" Any guesses? According to store manager Andy Laties, 30,000 titles!

A scavenger hunt for young readers at Bank Street Bookstore kept kids happy and warm on a snowy afternoon -- the first Tuesday in March. Participants found all kinds of hidden treasures, including a scurvy pirate, one of Maurice Sendak's Wild Things, and a green dragon looking down from atop a bookcase. Here are two friends who finished the hunt together and won a special prize.
