If your store does not have a dress code, you might want to reconsider that policy today. Chronicle Books is celebrating the release of Leo: A Ghost Story by Mac Barnett and Christian Robinson with a “Take a Bow for Leo” contest.
To participate, print out this paper bow tie pattern and fold it into a jaunty bow tie. Take a picture wearing the bow tie, and post the photo today (August 25th) on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #TakeABowForLeo.
Here’s what one lucky winner will receive: “a beautiful made-in-the-USA Knotty Tie Leo bow tie, signed copy of Leo and a teacup, tea and honey so you can enjoy Leo’s favorite snack: mint tea and honey toast!”
This activity would be fun for staff, but it would also be thoughtful to create extra ties for young readers who might be in the store today.
