We’re thrilled to announce the launch of the Barnes & Noble’s Kids’ Expert Circle , where parents can find helpful advice from trusted experts in the fields of literacy, arts and education, child development, and pediatric medicine.
B&N’s experts will be writing articles on topics such as heading home with your newborn, becoming a sibling, starting school, making friends, and potty training, as well as offering product suggestions to help you find the right book or toy for you and your child. For more info and a full list of their experts, click here.
The Expert Circle comes on the heels of B&N’s Online Storytime program, an original monthly video featuring well-known authors and celebrities narrating popular picture books for children ages 2-6. Just some of the authors showcased have been Maurice Sendak reading Where the Wild Things Are and Jane O’Connor reading Fancy Nancy: Bonjour, Butterfly. Upcoming Online Storytimes will be Jan Brett reading her bestseller, The Mitten, for November, and author Chris Van Allsburg reading The Polar Expressfor December.

Now children and parents can experience the same joy of Barnes & Noble’s in-store Storytime events in the comfort of their own homes.
You can also visit your local Barnes & Noble to find displays of each month’s Storytime books.
The good folks at B&N are working really hard to make parenting a little easier—and a lot more fun!
