I am so excited to team up with babyGap and Milk+Booties in promoting childhood reading and the launch of the brand-new Peter Rabbit line at babyGap with a free family event!
On Saturday January 26, I will serve as a guest reader of the newly-released The Further Tale of Peter Rabbit by Emma Thompson, illustrated by Eleanor Taylor and authorized by the estate of Beatrix Potter. I adore hosting story times for children in my home and community, and I cannot wait to share this engaging new story with others (but not to worry: I will not be attempting an English accent.)
This free family event will be held at the Pentagon City babyGap store at 11 a.m. In addition to the reading, babyGap is providing milk and cookies, coloring activities and special giveaways.
Families are also encouraged to bring gently used books from home that will be donated to local Boys & Girls Clubs. Gap has partnered with Milk + Bookies, a non-profit organization that encourages children to donate books to children in need for this event and book drive.
Reading? Books? Charity? A free Saturday kid-focused event? Milk and cookies? Shopping? What could be better?

If you do not live in the Washington, DC area, Gap is hosting 30 simultaneous events across the country in babyGap stores in Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Toronto, too.
By the way, the new Peter Rabbit clothes at babyGap for infants and toddlers are adorable classics. I can’t wait to pick up a few pieces for my expectant sisters-in-law and friends!
Disclosure: I will receive products for my children as thanks for the donation of my time.
