Lots of just published books have arrived at BookTree perfect for summer reading or giving as gifts. We now have Loyalty Cards and every $20 you spend on a new book earns you a stamp, when you fill the card up you get $25 to use on your next purchase of new books!
We also have the books Mary Ann Gwinn recommends as great summer reads, and we have signed Toni Yuly books and copies of her favorite classic children's books. We also have the books Bill Gates has on his Summer must read list. We can help recommend and find a great book for you to read, give as a gift, or read at bedtime to the kids or grand kids. We are also happy to order anything in print that we don't have in the store.
