If you know a child who would rather watch TV or play videogames than read, he or she may not have met the right bookstore yet. Once Upon a Huckleberry Bush might be just the ticket to jumpstart your child’s love for books. Not your average kids’ bookstore, Huckleberry works hard to make its space whimsical and inviting. The books are carefully chosen and arranged by age group, and every title is displayed in a way that encourages browsing.
Tell me a story
Dedicated to young readers in the hopes of cultivating a lifelong love for books, Once Upon a Huckleberry Bush goes above and beyond the function of a normal bookstore. The shop offers many special events and activities, including regular story time (at the foot of the magical huckleberry bush), organized book clubs to help develop reading skills and expand interests, and contests to cultivate kids’ imaginations and story telling abilities.
Gift of imagination
To encourage reading among all children, Huckleberry makes special offers and discounts available, including the Born to Read program (register your baby’s future birth and his or her first book is free!), the Frequent Buyer Program and amazing discounts for teachers and librarians (20 per cent off all school purchases).
