WALK-iN today, Sat. May 7, 1:00-4:00pm!
It is a proven fact that reading to your baby boosts brain power. 👶 Reading to them provides the building blocks of language development, sensory perception (touch and feel books, lift the flaps, etc) builds early vocabulary, and reading is key to future academic success. Time spent reading with mommy, daddy, or grandparents is also time spent bonding and cuddling. We all need lots of that! 🤗The BookLady’s Book attic has an awesome collection of baby and toddler books, many of them interactive with slide tabs, flaps, wheels to spin, touch and feel, but also books for learning numbers, colors, abc’s,opposites, animals, and spot the differences. 📚Call or text 630-234-5216 for a schedule to visit the shop by appointment or on random Walk-in days. I leave on vacation May 11th …👉🏻 Here are a couple sample pics of books just in.

Would you? Could you? Never! Not ever!
But I can sure recommend lots of great reads up in BookLady’s Book Attic!

04/30/2022

For the mom’s out there who read to you when you were little, who bought you books at the scholastic book fairs, and who molded you into booklovers- treat her to a gift certificate from BookLady’s Book Attic for Mother’s Day.
(👉🏻Payment by cash, check, venmo, paypal and zelle.) ➡️ Sweet idea- treat her to lunch in Bartlett one day and bring her to the bookshop to choose some great reads. That would make a delightful mother-daughter outing.
P.S. the shop door will be unlocked today. Just walk right in from 11:00-4:00!😊❤️📖📚💐

Need it? Gotta read it? One of my patrons of “BookLady’s Book Attic”
gave me a heads up this week that her child needed the novel 📖 Catcher in the Rye for class at Kenyon Woods. Luckily I have several copies still on hand so reach out to me ☑️ via text or voicemail (at 630-234-5216) if anyone else has a student in need. . . . . . Also, someone else told me 7th or 8th graders at another school (Kenyon Woods) are reading, or will be 📖 “To kill a Mocking Bird.” I have several copies of that as well though not all have the same cover. All are clean copies (not annotated) and uncut versions.
……. ➡️ An interesting fact about Catcher in the Rye: The novel was published in 1951 and remains on reading lists despite having been a banned book in some places in 1982, 1985, 2001, 2009.

I’m calling today Therapeutic Thursday. So much for the winter storm advisory that’s been hyped for the last few days. I fell for the hoopla and took the day off from the shop and nothing expected now until this afternoon? So it’s a therapuetic day for me at home as I take advantage of a quiet day with my furry reading buddy and am starting this book- “One by One” by bestselling author Ruth Ware. I SO enjoyed her creepy “The Turn of the Key,” so when I heard the premise of this one which involves getting ❄️snowed in❄️ (perfect February read) at a rustic ski chalet with 8 coworkers all of which have something to hide I hurried up last night and finished The Lost Apothecary (a very good read with intiguing aspects!) *** All of these books are available at BookLady’s Book Attic which is open by appointment tomorrow, Friday, from 11:00-5:00. Text or voicemail 630-234-5216 to book a time! Also look for the photos tab on my page and check out the suspense-books album!
