Celebrate the Magic of reading with a special playdate with Kidgits, Medieval Times, and Miss Lori at Gurnee Mills! Book Blast will start with a read-aloud session presented by the Prince and Princess of Medieval Times. After the reading nationally-recognized family entertainer from PBS Channel 11, Miss Lori and Clifford the Big Red Dog will be visiting and performing.
In addition to all the fun and games Simon Gurnee Mills have partnered with Better World Books. Each child that attend the event will go home with a pre-loved book and bookmark. Attendees are also encouraged to bring a new or gently used book to the event to be donated to local Gurnee School Districts 50 and 56.
“Because Simon Malls are destinations for families and friends to do more than just shop, Simon Kidgits Club is giving children the chance to experience all that books have to offer in a social setting,” said Jayne Stilson, assistant vice president of business development for Simon Brand Ventures, the business-to-consumer division of Simon Property Group. “We’re combining education with fun and allowing kids to simply have a blast with reading.”
