French Book Sale, Storytime and FREE Children’s Book Raffle on Saturday May 18th at the Gaithersburg Book Festival!



Bonjour Mama is having a big book sale this Saturday, May 18th from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Gaithersburg Book Festival

Our friends at Language Stars have generously offered to share their tent with us so please stop by to shop our growing collection of French and bilingual books. We have many new titles and characters, including Tinkerbell, Peter Pan and other Disney favorites in French! 



Also, please also join us for a French story time at 10:00 a.m. in the festival storytime tent (in the children’s village).  The book is a surprise, but it is an absolute favorite of ours so I hope you will like it too! I will be doing a FREE book raffle for everyone who attends, and three winners will be announced at the end of story time (10:20 a.m.). Each winner gets a FREE book(s) of their choice of up to $10 in value!


More about the Gaithersburg Book Festival
In case you aren’t familiar with it, this is a big event. It will be teeming with both up-and-coming (and already-arrived) authors, including one of our favorites: John Sciescza. He is the author of, among others, the fantastic Trucktown books – picture and/or early reader books for boys with big, bold text that begs to be shouted out: “SMASH! CRASH”!

There is a HUGE focus on children and young adults in addition to the grown-up author signings and workshops: the children’s village promises a “literary sea of activities, workshops and performances… designed to engage and stimulate your child’s book curiosity and interest in reading and writing.” 


The complete list of events and programs is on the web site and I am already getting that panicky feeling that there is so much to do we probably won’t be able to make it to everything.  Here are just a very few of the activities taken from the web site that look too good to miss:

  • Alden Phelps delights the audience with Word Play, an interactive musical performance that bolsters language skills while entertaining and teaching children original songs and rhyming.
  • Magician Mike Rose presents an entertaining and hilarious magic show which also promotes reading and library use.  
  • InterAct Story Theatre combines storytelling, drama and song to explore different world cultures. Children get into the act too by participating in this educational and riveting experience.



Alors....à samedi?  Stop by the Facebook page and let us know if you plan to come!
