Also, be sure to check out your local library for fun things to do.  There is great programming at our local libraries – and it’s almost always free.  Don’t forget, kids can read books for prizes with Barnes & Noble!

Most American Girl Store events cost.  But there are a few that are free.  Events vary by store. You can check out upcoming events at a store near you here.

Barnes and Noble:

 The Dinosaur Expert
During a field trip to the museum, Kimmy loves to share what she knows about dinosaurs, but when someone asks if girls can be paleontologists, Kimmy loses her voice. Will she find it again? Join us for Storytime and get a coupon from our Cafe for a grilled cheese sandwich with milk or juice for $4!

Don’t forget to pick up your reading log at Barnes & Noble so you can read for a FREE book!
