This Is Love

This Is LoveAs a community bookstore we know the power of positive connections. We appreciate the support of our local communities and once a year we sponsor a give back campaign. The inspiration for this year’s drive is the picture book “Love” by Matt de La Pena, illustrated by Loren Long. Their book is a story about the strongest bond there is and the diverse and powerful ways it connects us all: how to keep love present when fear and uncertainty is broadcast daily.

The recipient this year is the nonprofit organization School on Wheels. The mission of School on Wheels of Massachusetts is to support the academic, social and emotional growth of students impacted by homelessness. We invite customers to select the name of a child from our giving tree and purchase a book for that child. Buttonwood will offer 40% off the price and deliver the books to School on Wheels AND we invite everyone to post a note on our love board, featuring the art work of Loren Long, describing what love means to them.
