Summer in the Bookstore

Great Resource for Teachers and Other Educators

Mrs. Dalloway's has updated its For Educators page just in time for the upcoming school year. If you click on the tab at the top of this page, a drop-down menu appears; go to New and Noteworthy Books to access new book recommendations for children of all ages, as well as in categories like LQBTQ+, Immigrant & Refugee Stories, Social-Emotional Learning, and Bilingual. You can also peruse our Benefits and Services page to see all we offer to schools and teachers.

By the way, these recommended book lists are great resources for families and kids as well - have a look!

We've Got a Honey of a Collection of Books and Gifts For Bee Lovers
"The only reason for being a bee that I know of is to make honey. And the only reason for making honey is so as I can eat it." -Winnie the Pooh
Winnie's not the only fan of bees, and we want to create some buzz for our variety of merchandise celebrating these popular pollinators - books, tea towels, candles and more.

Chief among our favorites are gifts from Joan's a Keeper, produced at Honey Hill Farm in Carlisle, Ohio. The company uses natural ingredients and adds lots of TLC to their fragrances, soaps, and bath & body products. We're selling their Clean Rain and Warm Honey gift sets as well - it's a lovely package!
