-CUPCAKES!
-A scavenger hunt with prizes!
-The ever-popular train table in our front window!
-A special coloring section and a wall to hang the latest masterpieces on!
-Rolling discounts - certain sections will be marked down at different parts of the day! (The best bargain hunters are the patient ones.)

It's the Return of Peter Brown!

Peter Brown, author and illustrator of such books as My Teacher is a Monster and Mr. Tiger Goes Wild, visits Kids Ink from 4-5:00pm on Thursday, March 24th. This is a free event where he will sign on a first-come, first-served basis. We'll have plenty of his books available should you need to add some entertaining fun to your personal library.

Linda Sue Park Signing at Kids Ink Wednesday, March 2nd, 3:30pm

The child of Korean immigrants, Linda Sue Park was born in the MidWest, lived all over the United Kingdom, and returned to the USA with two kids before she ever thought about writing children’s literature. Now, with over a dozen publications and two major awards, readers the world over couldn’t imagine her doing anything else. Linda Sue Park – children’s author, poet, former college gymnast – will be signing at Kids Ink Bookstore March 2nd from 3:30 to 4:30pm.

You Can Make a Difference at Amy Beverland Elementary

To help support everyone at Amy Beverland Elementary after the tragic loss of their principal, Kids Ink will apply a 20% discount to books purchased for the school. We have a box set up to deposit books that we will deliver to the school library at the end of the drive, which will be February 8th.
If you can’t make it into the store, we’re able to take orders and payment over the phone at 317-255-2598.

Thank you for helping us assure the students and staff of Amy Beverland that they are not alone.

It's Story Time!!

Warm up the cars and get the winter coats ready, because Kids Ink's ever-popular Story Time is back in season! Beginning at 9:30am for kids ages 2-5 and their grown-ups, Story Time turns books into experiences, and we've got lots of great themes this year. Look at the schedule below, and be sure to let us know which you and your little reader will attend.

Our remaining early 2016 schedule is:

Holiday Hours have Begun!

This is the best kind of time change - the kind you don't have to make! Instead, we're changing our clocks so that we're open later. You'll be able to do your holiday shopping on your time, no matter how hectic your schedule may be!

Author Team Up Coming Up Soon!

Janna Matthies’s career in children’s writing is still young, having only begun in 2011 with the moving Goodbye Cancer Garden. Rebecca Kai Dotlich is a veteran in the field, the author of over a dozen books including What Can a Crane Pick Up? and What is Science? These two will have each other’s backs at a joint signing event for their new books at Kids Ink Children’s Bookstore November 14th from 11am to 2pm.

"It's a Wonderful Death" and a Special Occasion!

We always love seeing our neighbors succeed, especially in the world of publishing, and the latest rising star makes a fast and strong impression. Sarah Schmitt's debut novel hits shelves October 6th, an amusing and suspenseful tale about a teen girl paying for the mistake of a distracted Grim Reaper. Kids Ink is proud to present an amazing roller coaster across the viel: It's a Wonderful Death!
