Barnes & Noble Gift Card Giveaway!

By Kelly Turner on September 23rd, 2009




Toys are great, but more often than not they end up broken and lost within a week.  Ask anyone what their favorite toy was when they were little and they will probably have to think about it,  but everyone remembers their favorite childhood book.  (Mine was The Velveteen Rabbit.)

Imagine the great memories you can make with your child when you lead them into the book store and allow them to pick out their very own book- any book they want in the whole store.
