Scholastic Summer Readapalooza (With Dogman and Clifford, in person!)

We are delighted to be one of the sites around the country chosen for Scholastic's Read-A-Palooza Summer Reading Celebration. Join us for giveaways, crafts and activities, photo-ops and a special in-store appearance with Clifford the Big Red Dog and Dav Pilkey's Dogman!

Hear stories about Clifford and meet the Big Red Dog himself from 10:30 to 11:15.  Stick around for crafts and activities, and we'll end the festivities with a reading from Dav Pilkey's beloved Dogman series followed by an appearance by Dogman himself from 11:30 to 12 noon

As part of Read-A-Palooza we'll be accepting donations of new and gently used books from Sunday, June 16th through Saturday, June 22nd. Books will be delivered to our friends at Bernie's Book Bank. Bernie’s Book Bank sources, processes and distributes quality children’s books to significantly increase book ownership among at-risk infants, toddlers and school-age children throughout Chicagoland. Please help us to help them!

This morning of character appearances and activities is recommended for kids ages 3 and up. (Smaller kids are often frightened by our costumed character guests.)  Crafts and activities are aimed at kids ages 3-9. It is free and open to the public!

George and Harold have created a new breed of justice -- one that is part dog, part man, and ALL HERO! With the head of a dog and the body of a human, this heroic hound digs into deception, claws after crooks, rolls over robbers, and scampers after squirrels. Will he be able to resist the call of the wild to answer the call of duty?
