The Learning Tree toy stores 913-385-1234

Books, Books, Books!

With our Big Book Blowout Bonanza Sale underway (details below) we’ve got books on the brain! A book sale means we’re making room for great new fall titles. New titles from some of our favorite LOCAL authors.

The Kansas City area is home to a wonderful group of children’s book authors and illustrators.

Just like the Learning Tree, they are passionate about children, reading, and the joy that literature can bring.

During the month of September, we’ve invited a different local children’s author to join us for Storytime each week to read and share their books. We hope you’ll join us for these fun and free weekly gatherings and enjoy the local talent from our own backyard!
