Some thirty years ago, Lynn Kelly, one of the original owners of ACP, had the good great idea of sharing her love of children’s books with parents and their wee ones. A store was born! Lynn continues to grace the store by providing the current staff with her insights regarding the bookstore biz. Fortunate for us, she has also offered us a list of her all-time favorite Grandma Picks to share with you!
