While I was in San Francisco for the PBS Annual Meeting the PBS Kids VIPS got to tour a local Pottery Barn Kids store. There we learned about the reading challenge as we kearned about making a warm and inviting book nook for the kids. We were also provided with two Pottery Barn kids gift cards valued at $25. One to keep and one for a giveaway. You may enter my giveaway by leaving a comment on this post. I’ll use Random.org to pick one comment from the list on Friday June 20 and send the gift card to the winner provided that they live in the United States. More about the reading initiative after the jump.
