Hey Scrawl! I gave you a shout out in my new blog post of favorite kids’ books for social and emotional learning. I’m a therapist, mom, and bibliophile living in Herndon, and my son and I love your shop! Do you keep these books in stock?
Your "Where's Waldo" contest inspired Colin's Halloween costume! He is still trying to find Waldo almost daily. Today he's playing the game that came inside one of the small travel books he got from you. Thanks for igniting his joy!

Congrats, Scrawl team! Just saw your great shop on the Great American Read!!
I appreciate Scrawl Books being present last week to sell my book, "Dinner in Camelot," at the Fall for the Book event at the Richard Byrd Library, Springfield.
So, where are you?
