November 14, 2017 Newsletter – Start a Turkey On The Table Tradition

The Learning Tree toy stores 913-385-1234

Turkey on the Table is a wonderful way to express gratitude and to experience the joy of giving!


Turkey on the table

You are probably getting your plans down for the big feast, looking forward to visits from family and friends, maybe even planning your menu. Do you have your turkey ordered? Well, we’ve got a very special “Turkey on the Table” that we think belongs at your Thanksgiving this year!

This plump, fabric turkey starts out with no feathers. Write things that you are thankful for on one side of each blank feather and add them to the turkey. The turkey becomes a center piece and the feathers can be read aloud and shared.

Turkey on the Table is the perfect Thanksgiving activity that can become an annual holiday tradition for your family year after year. Will your family be guests at someone else’s Thanksgiving table? Turkey on the Table would be a lovely gift for your hosts!

Turkey on the tableTurkey on the Table not only brings thanksgiving and gratitude to your holiday, but the two women who created this product have teamed up with Feeding America and donate 10 meals to someone in need with each Turkey on the Table sold.

Each turkey comes with a set of feathers, a pen, and a storybook. Additional packs of feathers are available.

Create a new, giving tradition this year with Turkey on the Table.

The Learning Tree toy stores 913-385-1234
Storytime Goes Local

Get to know local children’s book authors that call KC home! Each week in September they’ll be visiting our regular weekly Storytime to read with us and share their love of children’s literature.

Join us for FREE weekly fun!
10:30AM Tuesdays – Corinth Square
10:30AM Wednesdays – Park Place

Silhouette by Clay RiceRead on to view our September events…

…and don’t forget to sign-up for your silhouette sitting with Clay Rice, visiting at the Learning Tree October 28th and 29th. SCROLL DOWN FOR ALL THE DETAILS!

Kathy Wolff at Park Place Tomorrow!

Kathy Wolff, author
Kathy Wolff, author of What George Forgot, is our first visiting author.Kathy will be with us tomorrow!
Sept. 6th at 10:30am: Park Place.

This is a free event.

Kathy Wolff lives in Overland Park, Kansas. But her debut picture book, What George Forgot, is anything but local, available in the US, UK and soon in Portugal and China!

What George Forgot book by Kathy WolffWhat George Forgot is just the book to enjoy during the start of the school year. As he goes about his morning routine, George has this funny feeling that there is something he is forgetting as he’s getting ready for school…but what is it? Laugh along with him as he tries to figure out just What George Forgot.

Want more? Check out Kathy’s website http://kathywolffbooks.com/ or follow her on Twitter @KathyWolffbooks.

Next Week’s Author, Bridget Heos

Local KC author, Bridget HeosBridget Heos is the author of over 70 non-fiction books including a 5th Grade Workman Workbook, a book about Jupiter, and a book about spiders! She has also written some wonderfully fun and silly picture books including Mustache Baby,and Mustache Baby Meets His Match.

In Mustache Baby, Baby Billy, born with a mustache, starts out nobly saving the day in imaginary-play sessions as a cowboy or cop, his mustache looking good-guy great. But as time passes, little Billy’s mustache starts to curl up at the ends in a suspiciously villainous fashion and, sure enough, “Billy’s disreputable mustache led him into a life of dreadful crime.” Plenty of tongue-in-cheek humor and cartoonish illustrations make this a family read-aloud-favorite!

Mustache BabyGet to know Bridget: If Bridget worked in a circus she would want to be a trapeze artist! If she could bring one character to life from a favorite book it would be Cinderella, because – wishes!

If she had to pick her least favorite word it would be “unfortunately.” It’s in almost every rejection letter!

Bridget lives in Kansas City with her husband and four kids. She likes to think about life as a story “If you are going through something hard, you are in the middle of your story. You must go through lots of interesting plot elements to reach your happy ending. And that’s when a new story begins.”

Dino O’Dell is a hit with Learning Tree Fans!

Kids Loved Dino O'Dell's performance at The Learning Tree in Corinth SquareWow! What a crowd we had for our friend, KC children’s entertainer, Dino O’Dell. We started off the week with a crowd of over 100 packed in the store. Kiddos, moms and dads, and grandparents were jumpin’ and jivin’. Dino invited everybody to participate as he read his new book Zar and the Broken Spaceship. Kids pushed imaginary buttons with their fingers , elbows, toes, and bottoms to help Zar fix his spaceship.

If you missed Dino last Monday, don’t despair! He’s coming back to The Learning Tree in Park Place this Tuesday, September 29th at 10:30. If you enjoyed him on Monday, come back for more. We’re always happy to see our friends happy and clapping to Dino’s tunes.

435 Magazine names The Learning Tree “Best Toy Store”

Best Of KC Awards 2015We’re wrapping up the summer with city-wide recognition!

In its August, Ten Year Anniversary issue, 435 Magazine editors and readers included The Learning Tree as one of KC’s “bests!”

435’s feature of The Learning Tree mentioned our knowledgeable staff of toy experts and our popular Kids Flea Market. Calling us “old school,” they pointed out that we have been “flourishing in the area since 1996.”

It’s not easy to survive in today’s marketplace as a small, locally owned business. It may be considered impolite to mention someone’s age but people are starting to notice – we’re coming up on twenty successful years!

435, thanks for noticing! And thanks to all our loyal customers! We owe it all to you! We may be one of the oldies, but our passion continues to be your play!
