"The Blossom Shoppe" Event Testimonials

We had the pleasure of having Poppy and Posie Blossom here for a special live reading of their story “The Blossom Shoppe” on Mother’s Day. Visitors both young and old were highly engaged as the characters came to life through story and song. The story itself is beautifully written and the illustrations are so lovely and whimsical. This is sure to become a classic. We look forward to reading more adventures of the Blossom sisters!” - Brenda Smith ( Manager) Stepping Stones Museum for Children
