Farmer's Market Business of the Week!
If it's Thursday, it must be Farmer's Market!
Today, May 24th, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., come check out Linden Tree at the "Business of the Week" booth at the Farmer's Market -- it's a great time to chat with a staff member who will have some new releases on hand to make recommendations for summer reading lists! Just walk across the street to the store, open until 8:00 p.m.!
Book Recommendations for Teens/Young Adults and Young Children
If your teen has finished "Hunger Games," and is interested in additional books of a similar genre, we suggest they delve next into the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth.
The first two books, about 500 pages each, are real page-turners. Young adults seem to also be intrigued that this author is only 23 years old herself!
We also have the latest in the very-popular Ladybug Girl series for younger children. With diverse themes like overcoming fears, friendships and compromise, and learning responsibility, we think there's something for everyone in these tales (she has a friend named Bumblebee Boy, too!)
If your children have their summer reading lists handy, this is a great time to get them to us! We can order any book in print and can get them in to the store within a few days.
Los Altos First Friday June 1st!
On Friday, June 1st, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., Linden Tree will be hosting a children's craft with a "Passport to Adventure!" Stop by to personalize your own summer passport and then visit the other downtown merchants for additional stickers and stamps.
We will also be happy to help you select books related to any travel you have planned for the summer -- from activities kids can do in the back of the car (TONS of Klutz books in stock!) to host/hostess gifts like cookbooks or young adult selections for nieces and nephews.
