The big day is only a week away – but you can Go on a Blind Date with a Book at Once Upon a Trapeze Bookstore the entire month of February!  Choose from all genres and read the first line, which is written on each book’s wrapping, to decide which one you’ll take a chance on before making any commitments! From Historical Fiction to Biography, from Travel Humor to Mystery, there’s not a wallflower in the bunch! A box of chocolates never hurts, either!

Are you ready to create more art?

We just received a new shipment of Leonardo Art Collection (How To) Books! These are great because they tackle one art topic at a time, giving clear, step-by-step instructions with lots of illustrations! Work on the fundamentals of drawing for awhile, then move on to perspective – or work on anatomy and figure drawing for awhile, then move on to portraiture. Come check them out when you’re looking to perfect a certain skill or the next time you get stuck!

Picture books for your Littles to dream big!

Little People, Big Dreams

I LOVE these books! Lately, I’ve been looking to expand my Children’s Nonfiction selection, adding more “I Survived” and “Who Would Win” books, but wasn’t seeing much in the way of a nonfiction series of picture books for the youngest of readers. In my search, I came across the Little People, Big Dreams series, written by Isabel Sanchez Vegara. Vegara first started writing these books to give her young nieces a way of connecting with great female roll models. Over time, it has blossomed into a complete collection of picture and board books for girls and boys of all ages. Each book begins with the person’s childhood, making an immediate connecting with young readers. The picture books also contain a timeline of the person’s life, as well as additional resources for further exploration. If you’re wanting to share the influential lives and accomplishments of Greta Thunberg, Martin Luther King, Maya Angelou, Jessie Owens, Frida Kahlo, or even David Bowie!, these are the biographies for your Littles!
