Back to School Books!

Leave a Comment

As summer starts to wind down and back to school advertisements flood our
newspapers, radio and television, I am often brought back to the time when
I, too was heading “back to school.” Back to school with new gym shoes,
brightly colored notebooks and a bunch of freshly sharpened pencils. Life
was good! In elementary school, I always eagerly awaited the “free read”
time of day. A time when all us little kiddos had full authority to browse the
children’s section of the school library. If there was a new book about bunnies
or trolls (or BOTH!), rest assured, I would find it.

It should come as no surprise when I found out I was to be the new “book buyer”
at Sivertson Gallery, I nearly screamed. I still feel the same joy, same rush, when I open a
beautiful children’s book. Full of warmth, amazing tales and gorgeous ART! With our new lounge
area in Grand Marais, conveniently located near our delicious tea, it’s not difficult to get lost in a book,
or two, or three….

In case you missed our new selection of books this summer, I want to give you an opportunity to indulge. Here is the list of some of the NEW books available at Sivertson Gallery in 2014:
