We're gearing up for the trip to 2011's Toy Fair in New York-- and you know all *sorts* of mega-cool super-silly truly fantastic items are going to follow us home. And that means we need room on our shelves! So with that in mind, the Sale Wall is back at Edwardsville's Once Upon a Toy.
Never fear! While they may not have entire *walls* devoted to sale items, both Fairview Heights and St. Louis Mills LagoonaMagoo Toys are sporting some pretty spiffy discount sections, too.
So don't delay! Stop by soon and stock up on things to keep everyone amused.
For over 20 years, Nancy Wessel was a beloved preschool teacher. As anyone who works closeley with children learns, the world can be a wacky, silly place. Her love of reading, teaching, and word play all come together in this lighthearted children's book. Her three grandchildren were a great help by creating the illustrations for her book.
Nancy pays tribute to all the children that passed through her school. The beginning of the book features the names of all the children who she inspired to learn and who inspired her right back. Now that they are grown, many of these children are excited to see Nancy's dream of being an author realized.
We hope you will stop by on the 12th to visit with Nancy, hear her read from her new book, and purchase a copy of your very own!
