One of our very favorite things to do here at Water Street Bookstore is to put the perfect book in the hands of a child. We believe that reading is such an important part of childhood. Children who read and are read to have deeper vocabulary and stronger critical thinking skills so do better in school and on standardized tests. But reading is so much more than just a means to an end. Introducing your child to reading is like buying them a round-the-world ticket with no expiration date. And the experience of sharing stories is a memory that your child will never forget. To that end, we'd like to do everything we can to help get you and your children excited about reading. From parties to contests to specially tailored advice, we are here for you.
