Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day - December 4, 2010

Author, Cheryl Rainfield from Kidlitosphere recently announced the First Annual Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day - December 4, 2010 and I wanted to help spread the word!

"Bookstores hold a place in the hearts and times of our community. They are places to discover an author, a story, a life. Nothing affords the conversation and interaction among books and book lovers that a bookstore does. In the future, whether you download your story or pluck a volume off a shelf, a bookstore will be able to accommodate. But in order for bookstores to flourish and thrive, we must expose future generations to the unique pleasures they offer. On December 4th, 2010, take the child in your life to a bookstore. Watch his face light up as you give him free access, not just to a new book, but to tomorrow.

Help spread the message by sending this poster to people, or download a version suitable for printing, and bring it to your favorite bookstore. Or add this banner to your website or blog, with a link back to this page."
