You might have heard the buzz that the latest exhibit at the Discovery Center is all about bees! The exhibit is also full of fantastic bee books for budding entomologists, and we've put together this list to share some of our favorites, which you can pick up at Paper June (they have a special display up all about bees right now!) or Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library to bring back to your hive.
WOW!!! That is all I can say. The weather. The talented kids. The determination and heart. The creativity!!!

This year's fair was a huge success and I am thankful that we had such great families to do it with. We already have big plans for next years event so keep an eye out in the spring for applications to come out. Keep on creating, selling and learning!!

I'm definitely adding this new middle grade fantasy to my tbr!

"Brimming with Celtic mythology, action, and danger, Erika Lewis's Kelcie Murphy and The Academy for the Unbreakable Arts introduces readers to a new kind of magical school and a warrior who must choose with which side of an epic battle her destiny will lie."


We are super excited to support a local young entrepreneur! Sleepy Fox Art Co earrings are now available at the shop.

Rory is a ⭐️! She's 11 years old and creates these earrings herself. She wrote a business plan and competed in the Youth Entrepreneur Challenge where she took second place!

March is Women's History Month. Let's celebrate the ladies - real and fictional - who inspire our kids!


I have been so excited for Mac Barnett's newest book - John's Turn.

In this story, it's John's turn to perform in front of the school.
Other kids have performed music or magic. John is going to dance! 🩰

The simple, sweet illustrations capture John's emotions as he nervously awaits her performance. As he begins to dance, the nerves are replaced with joy!

I adore this story because of John's bravery. And I appreciate this story because boys who dance deserve to see themselves represented. πŸ’œ


⚑️UPDATED: Sold Out! ⚑️

I am OBSESSED with these cuddly, caring + creative creatures (especially the highland cow!). 😍

Slumberkins were created by an educator and a therapist. Each creature collection teaches little ones valuable life skills that support their emotional growth β€” helping you raise caring, confident, and resilient children. What's not to love?!


We are very sorry for the late notice. We have kiddo doctor appointments and another child unexpectedly ill this morning. πŸ˜“

Do you judge a book by it's...

February is all about reds and pinks. Fall is warm and earthy tones. Winter is blues. Spring and summer covers bring brighter and bolder colors.

What book cover colors capture your reader's attention?


A true tale of the feverish race between two brilliant, driven, and insanely competitive scientists - Edward Drinker Cope and Othniel Charles Marsh - to uncover more and more monstrous fossils in the newly opened Wild West.

They discovered dozens of major dinosaur species, but at what cost?!
