Calling all young paleontologists! Celebrate Dinosaur Month with Book Culture on Columbus on May 28th at 11am!
It's pretty safe to assume that most children learn to move before they learn to read. So, when picture books are introduced to their constantly expanding worlds, a subject material they have been experimenting with for their whole lives can create a reading experience that is both stimulating and enjoyable. Enter picture books about dance--they are interactive, multi-dimensional ways to engage with the world and with books simultaneously.
We have updated our kids books page! The page now has more lists and incorporates more books that include classics, bookseller favorites, and newly published works. The lists encompass all reading levels, from board books to young adult novels.
We are so pleased to announce that native speaker Catherine Gonthier-Fishman will lead French Storytime at our Broadway location! French Storytime will take place every Wednesday at 3:30pm. Story time is free of charge and all ages and language abilities are welcome.
We would like to warmly welcome Catherine and thank her for volunteering her time! Join her for the first storytime meeting on Wednesday, May 20th, at 3:30pm.
Last Friday, I had the chance to meet with writer Sasha Matthews at our 112th store for an exclusive interview on her debut comic book Sitting Bull: A Life Story. Sasha Matthews is ten years old, attends fifth grade at a public school on the Upper West Side in Manhattan, and loves reading and writing comic books. We talked for over a half-hour about how she came to write Sitting Bull, what it is about comic books that inspires her, her influences, and most of all, what she finds surprising and challenging about the comic-book writing process.

On Tuesday, February 24th, at 7pm Dr. Tovah Klein will read and discuss her new book, How Toddlers Thrive, at Book Culture on Columbus. Dr. Tovah Klein, called "the toddler whisperer" on Good Morning America, has penned "a parenting milestone" (Dr. Harvey Rotbart, No Regrets Parenting) with How Toddlers Thrive, which shows parents of children ages two to five how to harness the singular power of the toddler mind during what might be the most crucial time of a child's brain development, to plant the seeds of lifelong success.
