Barnes & Noble Stores Nationwide To Host Ready For School Storytime Event In August

Barnes & Noble, Inc. (NYSE: BKS), the leading retailer of content, digital media and educational products, today announced that Barnes & Noble stores nationwide will host a Ready for School Storytime and celebration in August. Children ages 3-7 and their parents are invited to experience the joy of reading and celebrate the fun and excitement of learning with Dr. Seuss’s ABC : An Amazing Alphabet Book. The book features zany drawings and humorous verse that provides children with a fun way to learn letters and their sounds.

Children and their parents participating in the Storytime will take part in an exceptional entertainment experience as the book is read aloud and children are invited to read along on the critically acclaimed NOOK ® HD+, packed with pixels to deliver text, graphics and video with stunning HD clarity. The fun will continue with creative activities. Booksellers will also invite children and parents to enjoy treats and explore the Dr. Seuss’s ABC app on NOOK, which will keep even the littlest fans enthralled. With Google Play on NOOK HD and NOOK HD+, customers have access to more than 700,000 Android apps and games, millions of songs and more. Parents will also receive a “Tips for Reading with Your Children” handout designed to encourage a lifelong love of reading.

Additionally, every weekend this summer, customers can receive a NOOK Book Two-for-One Weekend offer in Barnes & Noble stores nationwide.

“Getting ready for school is always an exciting time,” said Sarah DiFrancesco, Director of Business Development for Barnes & Noble. “This fun Storytime with activities highlights how much fun learning can be through the inventive world of Dr. Seuss.”
