I always love a journey to a bookstore, but most of all, independent bookstores. One of my favorite local bookstores recently moved locations, so I was ecstatic when I finally had time to visit on Friday. I was giddy with excitement when I saw the awning of the new location; I stepped up to the door and instantly recognized the exquisite doorknob. It was lower than I was used to, about at the location of my hips and as I firmly grasped the handle, I noticed the expansive knob, barely able to grip around completely. “What a FABULOUS door knob!” I exclaimed. My friend chimed in with her sarcastic tone, “I’m sure that’s what they were going for, let’s move locations and focus on the door knob.”
We walked in and simultaneously closed our eyes and took a deep breath. After a moment, we came back to reality with a pleasing high of the book store smell. It is like no other. “They should bottle this smell! Incredible!” The new location was light and airy, with simple book displays lining the walls filled with incredible stories, waiting to be picked.
To the left of the door, I noticed a stand with INSPIRATIONAL books, and the book “Maybe” by Kobi Yamada caught my eye. Bingo! I picked up a copy and secretly welcomed it to its new home…our kiddo’s bookshelf. I am a fan of the other books like “What Do. You Do With An Idea?” and was anxious to break out the new story for bedtime that night.
Review: A simple, yet exquisite book full of amazing, life like illustrations. Each page provides a stunning visual and questions to prompt deep discussions with you and your little one. The cute little piggy metaphor of ‘when pigs fly’ comes to life at the end of the story and provides just the motivation you need to inspire you and your loved ones. Highly recommend!
