Big Rabbit Gets Bilingual!

We love the book Big Rabbit's Bad Mood. It's one of the best stand-by storytime books on the market right now. Simple enough for the younger set to follow, with a sense of humor that appeals to older kids, as well. So we were tickled pink when Chronicle Books editor Melissa Manlove came out to read Big Rabbit's Mood in English for our Books Inc.+Chronicle Books fundraiser for Room to Read last Thursday. But when her mother came out to read the same book... IN FRENCH we nearly lost our minds from excitement! Below are two videos: one in English, one in French.

Once in a while a great opportunity comes along...

... like author and master teacher, Hillary Homzie, giving a workshop for young writers (ages 8-13) at the Laurel Village store!

You have to watch this adorable trailer!

Leslie McGuirk is coming to Books Inc!

And you can watch the trailer for her newest book, If Rocks Could Sing, right here!

And come to Oh My Gosh! Stories on Saturday, June 25th to meet her.
