Kelly’s Comments: Barnes & Noble usually has very energetic storytellers, and the surroundings are always cute. We’ve been to the Town Center, Alpharetta, and Dunwoody stores for story time over the years, and all have been great. The only downside is of course, the kids are likely to beg for you to buy them books as you’re leaving, but is that really such a bad thing? Most B&Ns have a Starbucks inside, giving you that nice jolt of caffeine for the perfect amount of storytime sing-along energy! B&N sponsors a Summer Reading Program for Grades 1 to 6; if a child reads 8 books, s/he can choose a free book from a list of 20+ best-selling children’s offerings.
