My favorite late-winter weekend event combines books, kids, reading and loads of laughing, and rolled around again Saturday at the Boise Barnes & Noble.
It was the 10th year St. Luke’s has had the opportunity to partner with the store on North Milwaukee Street to throw a kid-sized party in support of literacy. The celebration takes advantage of the March 2 birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known across the world as Dr. Seuss.
Departments associated with St. Luke’s Children’s staffed booths, and 247 children and their families took part, a 40 percent increase over the crowd last year. The joyful mob played games, completed art projects and sat in on readings; this year, I departed from Dr. Seuss tradition and chose the crowd-pleasing “What to do if an Elephant Stands on Your Foot,” by Michelle Robinson and Peter Reynolds.
More than two-dozen books were donated, and percentages from sales from the day were earmarked to support St. Luke's Children's.
