I. Love. Barnes and Noble. We’ve had a blast at several of their free events, and tonight was no different. The kids listened to a reading of the Polar Express, had cookies and cocoa, did activities, met with Santa (after he arrived on a fire truck) and came home with jingle bells, ornaments, stationary for letters to Santa and activity worksheets- all free. I will definitely continue taking them to all of the events! I particularly love that their events are inclusive for all ages, and not only geared to the little ones!
