The Story Book House (a picture book boutique) with a long list of chapter books. It is a 3000 square foot house with old world charm.
This morning I discovered a new destination to add to my Dallas-area "Treasure Map" - The Story Book House. Located on Fairmount Drive in a charming 100-year old carriage house, The Story Book House boasts "a world renowned collection of the finest original illustrations from children's picture books." Additionally, their bookshelves are filled with classic, timeless titles that you are certain to recognize, as well as unique, unfamiliar works by talented authors that you have yet to discover. I was wonderfully tempted to purchase new books to add to my daughters' growing library, and also to consider their creatively-packaged gift baskets* - perfect for birthday parties, baby showers, and of course, Christmas presents.
The Story Book House owners Matthew and Kristine Abramowitz said, "We realized that Dallas was missing a children's book boutique, that special place where young readers can find a picture book they love as well as meet the incredible authors and illustrators they admire. We have found that a child who meets one of their favorite authors and illustrators can be positively inspired to read and explore their own creativity."
I cannot wait to take my daughters back with me next Saturday for The Story Book House's story time with Kristine, offered every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 10:30 a.m.!
*You should know that 10% of the proceeds of ALL gift basket sales benefit The Friends of Wednesday's Child - an organization that brings hope and healing to North Texas children in foster care so they can overcome pasts of abuse and neglect, and claim futures as confident, independent members of the community.
