Founded by Jenny Milchman when her children were young, Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day is an opportunity to celebrate the joy of books with young readers. It is also an opportunity to support local booksellers, become active in the local reading community and reinforce the importance of literacy.
This year’s celebration falls on December 3, 2016, the first Saturday of the month and, not by accident, the start of the holiday shopping season. Thanks to the support of bloggers, bookstores and book lovers, the event has grown each year. In 2015, more than 800 bookstores across 50 states and five continents participated in Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day.
